Specific CKD Canine Heart and Kidney Support Dry is for dogs suffering from heart failure (with concurrent kidney failure), hypertension, oedema, chronic renal insufficiency, hepatic insufficiency (except patients with cholestasis), urate, oxalate or cystine urolithiasis.
A restricted content of phosphorus is essential to prevent hyperphosphataemia and to slow down the progression of kidney insufficiency.
The reduced content of protein in combination with protein of high biological value and an alkaline pH reduces azotemia in dogs with renal failure. In dogs with renal failure it reduces the likelihood of hyperammonaemia and possible hepatic encephalopathy. The high biological value of the proteins supplies a sufficient amount of essential amino acids to the dog.
Specific CKD Canine Heart and Kidney Failure has unique high levels of the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA derived from fish oil In dogs with cardiac disease EPA counteracts cachexia, improves arrhythmia and reduces hypertension and platelet aggregation.
In dogs with kidney failure omega 3 fatty acids help to slow down the progression of kidney failure.
