Royal Canin Vet Diet Cat Food: Renal Special
Royal Canin Renal Special is a complete dietetic feed for adult cats that has been formulated to support renal function in the case of chronic or temporary renal insufficiency, through its low level of phosphorus and high-quality protein. Due to low level of calcium and vitamin D and its urine alkalising properties, it also helps to reduce oxalate stone formation.
It is available in 500g, 2kg and 4kg bags.
Key benefits of Renal Special Cat Food:
- Very low phosphorus - a very low phosphorus intake is key to help support renal function in cats with chronic renal insufficiency.
- Vascular support - nutrients that help support good renal filtration.
- Enhanced palatability - helps to stimulate feeding in cats with renal insufficiency.
- Digestive security - nutrients which support a balanced digestive system.

Having to put one of my cats onto a renal diet, thankfully she really likes this product and again, ideal i can buy this in the 500g option.
My cat wouldn't eat them. Also, renal food is much more expensive than regular cat food and I really don't know why. I can only assume it's got less salt etc in it, yet they charge more? Seems like a con to me.
Good quality food, our cat has kidney disease and is on a prescription diet. He enjoys the food and it's helped him to gain a healthy weight.
