Answer by ChewySep 26, 2018
This food is specially formulated to address medical concerns and requires a prescription. It is not recommended to feed this to a pet who the food is not prescribed for.

What is the consistency of this product? Is it pate, or does it have chunks?
Answer by ChewyOct 01, 2018
This texture of this canned food is pate.

What’s the difference between early care and advanced care in the kidney cat food?
Answer by ChewyMay 23, 2020
The Early Care Formula is designed for cats with minor kidney issues. It features Reduced phosphorus and sodium levels, plus added B-complex vitamins help maintain kidney function. The Advanced Care Formula has been specifically formulated to minimize the sign of kidney failure and help slow the progression of the disease. It has restricted amounts of high-quality protein, low phosphorus levels, and a reduction in sodium which helps reduce the workload on the kidneys.

What is the phosphorous content on a DMA percentage?
Answer by ChewyJul 11, 2019
The phosphorus content for this recipe is 0.43% on a dry matter basis.

Kimberly KG

My cat has had every prescription diet available for renal issues( before the renal issues she was on to other prescription diet for digestive issues). She didn’t really like any of them, in particular she never liked the canned food. She loves both the wet food and the dry food in the Purina prescription diet. I am so relieved because she has medications that have to go in her food and it’s stressful when it’s hard to get them to eat so you know they’re not getting their medication, but we don’t have that problem anymore. She loves the Purina Rx Diet!!!

Vet recommended cat food

My Jake is a 16 year old rescued Maine Coon mix that has always been a picky eater. Although he did eat the first can of Purina ProPlan NF Kidney Function Early Care Wet Cat Food, now he just walks away. I even tried mixing in canned tuna or salmon, but he still won't eat it. So it's back to Friskies pate for him.

Cat wouldn't eat it

This was recommended by my vet for my older cat who is stage 4 renal failure. He has a good appetite for good food but he wouldn't touch this stuff. I ended up wasting money and food (my perfectly healthy cat didn't even want it). Now I'm stuck with most of these can that no one will even pity eat. It smells gross, it looks gross, I couldn't doctor it up enough with treats or toppers to make anyone want it. So if your cat is picky or just normal, I wouldn't recommend this food.

My cat is not excited about this

The usual food my cat has been eating has been unavailable for some time now. I don't think she likes the taste and/or texture. I purchased this food because it was the only other option. The texture is odd. Some areas in the can are very hard and others are softer. My cat will eat it only if I mix it with her kibble. She has kidney disease so I prefer not to feed her too much dry food but I have no choice for now.

Did not like

Shiba did not like this. She walks away from it. It is a veterinary diet to help pro long a heathy life. But it is something Shiba would not eat. Shiba is 20 years old and in the early years of kidneys slowing down.

Will I like this new food? Maybe.

Chewy, You are the best! As you know, cats can be very finicky, when I talked to representatives about his problem choosing what food to accept, each one was understanding and kind, and helped solve the problem. Thank you to each of you.

He likes it

Was feeding my 15 yr old buddy Royal Canin early consult renal wet successfully for last 5 years or so but it keeps going out of stock as it is now, & price has almost doubled in the past year. Vet suggested pro plan NF as alternative & he is mowing it down. Also has a better price.

UTI! In 7 year old cat

When our seven year old cat had a urinary tract infection with a lot of sludge in her bladder the doctor prescribed this food. I was so afraid that because it was prescription food I was going to have a difficult time with her to eat it. I’m so happy to be able to say she loves it! And after two weeks of antibiotics and this food including the dry of the same brand she’s 100% better! Thank you Chewy for the great price and incredibly fast delivery!

Did not like it

My cat will not eat it. It also comes in such big cans that I end up throwing most of it away.

My little guy loves this!

This is the second kidney friendly food to use and he loves it! Much better than the science designed stuff!
