Description

For dogs with kidney problems, Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NF Kidney Function Canine 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 dogs with kidney problems feel better. It offers dietary benefits that provide optimal nutrition while meeting your adult dog's special needs.

Key Benefits

  • Kidney disease can occur in dogs 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 pup 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 dogs with chronic renal failure, hepatic disease associated with encephalopathy, or any condition that benefits from restricted sodium levels.
  • Made in the USA!

  • Picky Eaters Beware!

    By on

    My shih tzu was diagnosed a few weeks ago with an extremely mild case of kidney disease so I immediately ordered this food for her to slow its progression. She has always been a picky eater and before this, she was eating Purina Lam and Rice formula. Once this arrived, she didn't touch it at all and when I mixed her old food in with this to help transistion, she would pick out only some of her old food. This went on for days with me adding in Beneful chopped bites to make it more appealing. When she started eating my cats' food, I knew the fight was over. She was so hungry and yet she refused to eat this. If she would eat it, it would be wonderful, but it's worthless if she won't even try it My shih tzu was diagnosed a few weeks ago with an extremely mild case of kidney disease so I immediately ordered this food for her to slow its progression.

  • Weight loss

    By on

    Blossom was diagnosed with kidney disease a year ago. Since then, she has lost 13 pounds. I first bought Royal Canin Renal food for her but she didn't like it. She barely eats even the canned renal food. So I tried the Purina NF in a small bag and she ate it for a while. Then I ordered the large bag and now she is not eating it either, alone or mixed with canned food. I can't find any "human" food I can give her. Can you suggest anything? Thank you, Merrilyn

  • She LOVES it

    By on

    My dog Lucy is a 13 year-old Walker hound with a fussy streak when it comes to dry dog food. The vet prescribed another kidney safe food and it was a struggle to get her to eat and she lost weight. I asked if I could try Purina NF kidney food and she has been devouring her food as it hits her bowl and asks for more. Thank you Purina and thank you Chewy for your wonderful customer service and for making it so easy to get this special food!

  • He loves it!

    By on

    Before I rescued my dog, he contracted leptospyrosis and as a result has some kidney damage. My vet recommended this food, and so far it's been great. He's a picky eater, but he LOVES this food. He also has a very sensitive tummy, but has had zero problems.

  • Great quality

    By on

    My old dog is on the big 3 pills for arthritis and old age (transform rimadyl and gabapentin) so he needs help with his organs. He has been on this food for a couple years along with the pills, and his blood work came back perfect.

  • My Dog Won't Eat It.

    By on

    Libby eats around it. I have tried chicken broth, beef broth, scrambled egg white, chicken, vegetables, etc. She will eat any and everything BUT this food. She hates the canned version too. I understand that this is a salt free bland food for dogs with Chronic Renal Disease, but it is worthless if dogs won't eat it. She will eat plain dry bread before she will eat this food. It must be pretty horrible tasting.

  • As always Chewy comes through!

    By on

    My Vet prescribed this food for our senior dog, but they don't sell it . Only 1 local vet sells it, they want a prescription and they run out of it all the time. I saw Chewy sells it, placed the order, my prescription had expired Chewy called the Vet. and got my order approved. I received the food the next day! Thank You Chewy!

  • Dog LOVES the fomula!

    By on

    If you have to have special kidney food for a large 80lb dog, then this is the best value! Has a 34lb bag at a greater value than the Hills Diet and my dog loves it too!

  • Bad smelling dog food

    By on

    My golden was prescribed a rental diet. I choose this product. She will not eat it. It has a horrible smell as well. If your dog is a picky eater do not chose this one.
