The role of dietary management in canine kidney conditions is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Low phosphorus intake helps to protect against hyperphosphatemia and the associated renal damage. Restricted but high quality protein in the diet minimizes the intake of nonessential amino acids. This helps decrease the production of nitrogenous waste products. Reduced levels of sodium help compensate for the diseased kidney’s inability to regulate this important mineral.

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NF [Kidney Function] Canine Formula offers dietary benefits that provide optimal nutrition while meeting your adult dog's special needs:

  • Low phosphorus
  • Reduced protein
  • Added potassium
  • Reduced sodium
  • Target urine pH-alkaline (6.7-7.5)
  • Source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids

Additional Information

Diets with these specific nutritional modifications have been recommended for dogs with a history of the following conditions:

  • Renal failure
  • Hepatic disease associated with encephalopathy
  • Conditions benefitting from moderate sodium restriction
