Royal Canine Feline Renal Support: Notes from our vet
If you notice your cat drinking more than normal, losing weight or refusing to eat, these could be signs that something is wrong with their kidneys. As cats get older they are much more prone to kidney problems so it’s a good idea to start having your cat checked by a vet each year once they reach the age of 8.
Kidney problems can be very serious and are not something cats can fully recover from. However you can help slow down any disease by making sure your pet has the right food to eat. This has been shown to increase a cat’s lifespan, often by up to 2 years.
Royal Canine Feline Renal Support helps your cat by reducing the amount of work their kidneys have to do. Pets only have to eat a small amount of this food to get a much needed energy boost. It’s also specially formulated to make sure your cat doesn’t get a toxic build-up of unwanted minerals which can make them very ill. Important antioxidants and essential fatty acids are added to help your cat’s kidneys carry out their vital work.
Kidney problems can make cats very fussy eaters. Royal Canin Feline Renal Support is super tasty to encourage your cat to eat. By mixing ½ teaspoon with your cat’s normal diet and gradually increasing this each day, most pets will accept their new food in a few weeks.
By making sure they have the right food, you will be helping your cat cope much better and giving them a new lease of life.
