How it works

When to use it
The function of healthy kidneys is to filter your cat's blood and remove waste, keeping the right level of vitamins and minerals in your pet's body. If the kidneys become damaged, waste and toxins might not be safely removed, and can make your pet seriously ill. It's therefore vitally important to take your cat to the vet if you notice any potential signs of kidney damage.
Symptoms to be aware of include drinking or urinating more than usual, weight loss, a decreased appetite, and vomiting and diarrhoea. Although kidney disease is more common in older cats, it can also occur in younger pets, particularly if they've swallowed a poison such as antifreeze. If your vet does diagnose kidney disease, there are a range of treatment options they might offer for your cat, such as medication, intravenous fluids, or a specialist diet.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Veterinary Feline Renal Special to your cat, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
