Special cat diet for cats with renal failure. Contains potassium citrate to prevent bladder stones. Reduced protein, phosphorous & calcium content, and contains important vitamins & mineralsKattovit Kidney/Renal (Renal Failure) Diet is a special food for cats that suffer from kidney problems. Renal failure can result from breeding, environmental influences or even poor diet. Animals suffering from renal failure are often severely impaired as a result. To prevent this problem developing, it is incredibly important to supply your cat with plenty of fluids. A feed with reduced protein content can also help as a high animal protein content is considered to be a major factor in the development of kidney problems. To ensure your pet has enough energy, the food contains a higher calorie content from non-meat sources. Potassium citrate, on the other hand, can help to reduce the acidity of urine, thereby preventing painful bladder stones (also called oxalate crystals). The phosphorous and calcium contents are also lower. Taurine and other important vitamins and minerals round this food off nicely to ensure your cat has plenty of strength and vitality.
