Description

For cats with kidney problems, Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NF Kidney Function Feline Formula offers balanced nutrition to help support the kidneys. NF is formulated with low sodium, phosphorus and protein to help reduce the workload on the kidneys and help cats with kidney problems feel better. It offers dietary benefits that provide optimal nutrition while meeting your adult cat's special needs.

Key Benefits

  • Kidney disease can occur in cats of all ages, but it normally appears in that of older pets. It can't be cured, but with proper treatment and dietary management you can help make your cat much more comfortable.
  • Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NF has been specifically formulated to minimize the sign of kidney failure and help slow the progression of the disease.
  • Restricted amounts of high-quality protein, low phosphorus levels, and a reduction in sodium all help reduce the workload on the kidneys. Added B-complex vitamins help to protect the body and break down nutrients.
  • Designed for cats with chronic renal failure, hepatic disease associated with encephalopathy, or any condition that benefits from restricted sodium levels.
  • Made in the USA!

  • kaytee says YES

    By on

    kaytee has been a kidney diet patient since jan '17. I've tried several other brands and flavors of the renal failure diet and she either hates it or only eats a few mouth fulls. this flavor and brand seems to be a hit and she consistently cleans her bowl. she goes in for a check up in two weeks, so it is my hope that her weight finally goes up and her kidney values are in an acceptable range. chewy.com has the best price around on this product but it is still kind of expensive which is the reason for only 4 stars.

  • Finicky cat - surprise, surprise!

    By on

    We ALL know how finicky cats are...mine would not eat anything for the last 14 years except Natural Balance Indoor formula UNTIL they changed the formula last year - I picked up 30 different cans and he settled on Friskies. Now he has kidney failure and I tried all 4 types of Hills KD but he didn't eat for 4 days and I went back to Friskies not wanting him to starve. A few day later I read about Purina Pro Plan NF and finally found a vets office that sells the cans. I tried the first can and he gobbled it up, the same thing again, now it's Day 3 and he's still eating it, so I ordered the case from Mr. Chewy. Hopefully he will still eat it after day 5.

  • Abby says Okay!

    By on

    Our 16 yr old cat Abby was diagnosed with early stage kidney failure. The vet prescribed a kidney diet. We tried a lot of them, which she rejected. Complicating the situation, our younger cat Theo is still allowed wet food. I found that taking a can of NF, and mixing it with a small can of Fancy Feast eased the transition. I still pour the "juice" from the can of Theo's morning FF onto Abby's breakfast. For dry food she prefers the Hill's KD.

  • Start 'em Young!

    By on

    My two elderly cats (19+ and 18+) are both in very early renal disease. Our vet suggested putting them on a kidney diet, but that requires them to eat food that isn't as tasty as the salt-filled regular stuff they have insisted we feed them. They turned their noses up at this immediately and, while we could give them no options, at their ages, we just don't have the heart. They've lived good, long lives and we just want them to eat and not claw us to death in our sleep. Any new cats that may be in our future will start out with a blander low-salt diet so any transition to function-specific food will be easier.

  • Another Failed Kidney Diet

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    For anyone who has a CKD cat, this is almost the worst disease I think any of our kitties could be diagnosed with. I have spent $100s on food to get my little man to eat including all the prescription diets and, at this point, anything that is non-prescription. Purina NF was, unfortunately, another failure. It's hard as a rock and no matter whether I let it sit at room temperature, serve it cold, serve it warm, mash it up with water, cut it into chunks, sprinkle FortiFlora to entice him, add chicken broth...he would NOT eat it! A very expensive case of food for something that my cat won't even lick to try, but simply turns his nose up at and ignores it completely. Frustrating!

As one reviewer has said, I am beginning to believe there is no such thing as a truly palatable kidney diet. As another reviewer said, WHY are there not more kidney diets that are minced or chunked? Not all cats like pate! … more

  • My cat became finicky with this food

    By on

    My cat gobbled down the vet's samples the first couple of days and couldn't get enough. So I ordered my buddy a case. Then he completely stopped eating it and now won't touch it. I tried another renal diet food during the time he was eating it and I think he decided he liked that one better. Will donate the stuff I got from Chewy.

  • Good for him, but not his favorite.

    By on

    I know this is a good product because we used it for a cat who had kidney problems in the past. Our cat, Sam, doesn't particularly like this food or the special food we got from the vet. It helps to offer him a choice. Some diet foods just can't be made as tasty as foods for cats with no dietary restrictions. I wish we could explain to him why he had his diet changed. Of course if I were put on a bland diet I wouldn't like it even though a doctor could explain to me why it was necessary.

  • My Cat did not like this food.

    By on

    When I ordered this food for the first time, my cat ate the food well. After two shipments, he was no longer eating the food and essentially making a mess instead of eating the food. We have switched brands.

  • Finicky eater does a nose dive

    By on

    My beautiful and loving kitty now needs an RX food. We tried out 4 different brands, and this is the one she dove into, to eat of course, right away. It also works for her when I need to give her liquid medication, mixed in. Thank you Purina NF!
