The ingredients list "animal fat." Which species of animals are used?
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2017
The fat used in Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NF Kidney Function Formula is beef tallow.

Is this product formulated to also help increase and maintain body weight?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2019
This food 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.

What about reducing frequent and "heavy" urination?

This Kidney formula is not made to target frequent or heavy urination, however, it may help. We strongly recommend reaching out to your vet if your cat is having issues with urination, so you can get a professional opinion about what will be the most beneficial for your cat.

Is there any chicken products in this food?

Regret buying dry food

Have 2 cats now in Renal Failure (vaccines are a scourge to pets and humans! Never again putting them in me or them). Rushed to buy something to help by cats, got the wet and dry Purina NF Advanced. They like the flavor of the dry fine but not the wet. After MUCH study and knowing very well that dry food should really NEVER be in a cat’s diet, I’ve come to the understanding that I need to feed a homemade raw whole animal diet and lower the Phosphorus. They still need proteins which usually comes with the increased Phosphorus so a blocker needs to be added. And, THEY NEED TO EAT! Which is a challenge with this food they don’t like. Big business like pet food companies and pharmaceutical companies are all about the money. Feed them like nature intended.

Kibble is too big for her to eat.

I cannot rate this rx kibble for her as the kibble pieces are too big for her to eat. I like her to have a bit of variety in her advanced kidney disease prescription food-both pates & dry. Royal Canin Advanced Kidney kibble is half the kibble size than that of Purina Pro Plan Advanced Kidney prescription kibble. She loves the Royal Canin rx. She cannot eat the much larger Purina rx.

Cats like the taste

Prescription foods are not a favorite with most cats. I have tried a couple other brands and this one they seem to really like. I wish it was more affordable, but the health of my cats are a priority. I will definitely buy again.

Finally found the one thing our boy will eat!

A month ago our cat Ash was diagnosed with CKD. He stopped eating and we were going crazy trying to supplement, force feedings, trying fresh chicken and shrimp, basically anything he would eat. This is the one food he goes crazy for. I hope it lasts but CKD really is a rollercoaster of ups and downs. This food is calorie dense, so I only need him to eat half a cup a day. I am concerned it will dehydrate him if this is the only thing he will eat, but I still offer various wet foods and hope eventually he will come around. Give it a try if your cat has given up on eating; this food may work to get them going again. He hated the canned version of this and he used to love only wet food, so I am both surprised and glad this worked. I'm also thankful Chewy and Purina offer a small bag; it is less wasteful if they don't end up liking it.

Hard to rate

My cat has been diagnosed with kidney disease and my vet told me to put her on this food. She does not like it. I feel bad taking her regular food away from her but this is what she needs. I’m sure the food is good for her she just doesn’t like it. So I only gave it three stars because it’s not the fault of the food it’s the fault of my picky cat.

Candy loves it!

Candy had already rejected the Hills and Royal Canin varieties of dry cat food that were recommended by her vet. I thought I would give the Purina one a try. She was already familiar with the Purina Fancy Feast canned cat food which she really loves. However, I was very surprised with her reaction to the new dry food. She began eating it immediately. There was no coaxing her or mixing the new food with her Purina One Indoor Advantage Senior dry food. Next, I'm going to try the Purina canned cat food for kidney function. It's more (a lot more) expensive than the one I'm now using. However, if it works it's worth it. Candy is 15 now and I'm looking forward to a few more good years.

Great product and quick delivery

I was able to locate both food prescription items for my cat. I now have her prescription food items and her medicine from Chewy. Easy to place the orders and quick delivery. Thank you

Not their fave

I bought this along with Royal Canin Renal-A for my cat in kidney failure. Because I was curious, I bought both varieties. My previous cat in renal failure did fine on Royal Canin Renal-A, but I thought I’d give her options. I set out this Pro Plan food in a bowl, the dry Royal Canin Renal-A, and dry Royal Canin Persian in bowls. All 3 of my cats prefer the Royal Canin Renal-A and RC Persian foods. So the Pro Plan is not being consumed at all, and the Royal Canin Renal-A bag is low.

CKD food for my cat

My cat loves this food. It was recommended by my vet. Just started feeding it, so can't see results yet, but hopefully it will keep her CKD from progressing much.
