This recipe has been specifically formulated to meet existing veterinary nutritional clinical guidelines for early stage (IRIS stage 1-2) Kidney Failure in Dogs.
Phosphorus is reduced to <0.5%DM. Protein level is moderated to <70g/1000kcal to reduce nausea and support kidney disease, whilst still providing sufficient protein to prevent muscle wastage in pets that are still relatively well/active.
Sodium is lowered to <0.2%DM and Omega 3 is provided at veterinary recommended levels for Kidney Failure (>0.5%DM). We have included additional antioxidants (Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Natural antioxidants in fresh vegetables, Hawthorne and Spirulina) and have ensured that B vitamin levels are increased to replace the B vitamins lost in urine in kidney diseaes, and to support a healthy appetite.
