An estimated one in 10 dogs will experience kidney disease in their lifetime, and the best way for pet parents to combat it is through specialized foods that promote healthy kidney functions.
Rick’s Kidney Support is the perfect dog food for kidney disease, achieving the balance of high moisture and low phosphorus that’s nutritious, natural, and—above all—delicious. This formulation has approximately 663 calories per pound.
If your dog is suffering from kidney disease or other renal problems, a low-phosphorus dog food is the best option.
What Are the Signs of Kidney Disease in Your Dog?
Just like in people, kidneys play an important role in the health of your dog, so it’s crucial that you’re giving them the best kidney support possible in their food.
Chronic kidney failure is more common in older dogs and is a product of genetics and aging. Most dogs cannot fully recover from chronic renal disease, but they can be made more comfortable and the right food can slow the progression of kidney failure. On the other side, acute kidney failure is a sudden decrease in kidney function usually caused by toxins or an infection, and if caught quickly, it can be cured.
If you notice any of the following symptoms in your dog, it’s possible they are suffering from kidney failure and you should speak to your vet immediately to avoid long-term complications.
- Weight loss
- Significant loss of appetite
- Blood in urine
- Increased thirst/urination
Why Low-Phosphorus Dog Food?
All dogs need phosphorus in their diet, but when the kidneys aren’t able to filter out the excess amounts, toxic levels of phosphorus can build up in their system. The right kidney support in dog food means finding the right balance: low in phosphorus and high in moisture.
Creating dog food for kidney disease should start with ingredients that are naturally low in phosphorus to avoid putting too much stress on the kidneys. Renal support dog food should also be high in moisture, as dehydration makes it difficult for the kidneys to remove toxins and excess phosphorus from the blood.
Our Kidney Support dog food was developed in conjunction with veterinarians to specifically address kidney disease and other renal issues. It includes only low-phosphorus ingredients that help your dog’s kidneys remove toxins.
Plus, it’s high in moisture, so your dog’s meals will be hydrating as well as delicious!
