KEY BENEFITS & CHARACTERISTICS

Low Phosphorus*
Low dietary phosphorus helps slow down the development of
renal disease and minimize the risk of secondary hyperparathyroidism.

Restricted Protein Level*
Restricted level and the high quality of protein help reduce the
production of uremic toxins while maintaining sufficient kidney
fluid turn over and body condition.

Phosphorus Binding
Addition of Phosphorus binders (chitosan and calcium carbonate)
helps reduce the phosphorus bioavailability.

High Energy Density & Palatability
High energy density helps deliver small and concentrated daily
rations, and palatability helps maintain sufficient daily food intake,
to support patients against undernutrition.

High EPA+DHA (omega-3)
High level of omega-3, especially EPA + DHA, helps modulate
inflammatory processes in the kidney.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS & CHARACTERISTICS

Increases Antioxidant Activity
High level of vitamin E helps promote antioxidant activity.

Limits the risk of Digestive Ulcerations
Addition of Sepiolite helps protect the digestive mucosa against damage linked to uremia.

Limits the risk of Metabolic Acidosis
Addition of alkalising agents (calcium carbonate) helps limit the risk of metabolic acidosis.

Limits the risk of Hyperparathyroidism
Increased calcium, with Ca:P ratio = 2, helps limit the side effect of high phosphataemia and limit the risk of hyperparathyroidism.

Limits the risk of Hypokalaemia
Increased dietary potassium content helps compensate for urinary losses and limit the risk of hypokalemia.

Limits the risk of Lower Urinary Tract Disease
Adjusted RSS** for struvite and oxalate help maintain urinary health.

Suitable for Adult and Senior dogs
The amounts of all essential nutrients fit the daily requirement of adult and senior dogs.

VETERINARY GLOBAL CARE

Chronic Kidney Disease

• Low phosphorus
• Added phosphorus binders
  (Chitosan & Calcium carbonate)
• Reduces uremic toxins
  (Restricted protein of high quality)
• Helps modulate inflammatory
  processes in the kidney
  (High EPA + DHA, Vitamin E)
• Limits the risk of digestive
  ulcerations (Sepiolite)
 

Denutrition Management

  • High energy & Palatability

Helps limit the risk of:

  • Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
  • Metabolic acidosis
  • Hypokalaemia

• Limits muscle loss
  (restricted, but sufficient protein)

  • High Digestive Tolerance
  • Urinary Health
  • Coat support
  • Withdrawal of major allergens
  • Limits muscle loss: The restricted, but sufficient dietary protein content (20.5%) and the high quality of protein (in vivo apparent digestibility coefficient: 84%) help maintain muscle mass.

Chronic Kidney Disease Management

  • Low dietary phosphorus content (0.4%) and added Phosphorus binders (chitosan, calcium carbonate) help reduce phosphorus bioavailability.
  • Helps reduce uremic toxins: The high biological value of proteins (amino acid profile) favours the integration of amino acids into the anabolism processes and therefore reduces catabolism.
  • The high EPA+DHA content (0.4%) helps modulate inflammatory processes in the kidneys.
  • Addition of antioxidant: The richness in vitamin E (570 mg/kg) helps reduce oxidative processes.
  • Limits the risk of digestive ulcerations: Added Sepiolite (0.5%) helps protect the digestive mucosa against damage linked to uremia.

High digestive tolerance:

  • The addition of Sepiolite, Lactobacilli, lignocellulose and FOS helps maintain a healthy digestive tract (mucosa, microflora, motility and transit).

Urinary Health:

  • The adjusted RSS for struvite and oxalate help maintain urinary health.

Skin & Coat Support:

  • The protein content (20.5%), especially of animal origin (73%), and the high and balanced omega-6 (3.5%) and omega-3 (1%) fatty acids help maintain healthy skin and shiny coat.

Withdrawal of major allergens:

  • The diet is made without beef, gluten, maize, wheat, soya, egg, dairy products.

Denutrition management:

  • The high energy density (calculated 390 kcal/100g, measured: 395 kcal/100g), thanks to high fat level (22%), and the high digestibility of nutrients allow to propose small concentrated daily rations and help maintain optimal body weight.
  • High palatability: The choice of ingredients, mainly of animal origin, favours food intake

Helps limit the risk of:

  • Secondary hyperparathyroidism: Increased dietary calcium intake (0.9%) allows to achieve Ca:P ratio= 2 and limit the side-effect of high phosphatemia.
  • Metabolic acidosis: The addition of alkalising agent (calcium carbonate) helps increase the pH in the body fluids.
  • Hypokalemia: Increased dietary potassium intake (0.8%) helps compensate for urinary losses.
