i rescued a 13 year old shelter pomeranian who after testing has stage 2 kidney disease. i am thrilled and surprised that she eat Royal Canin Kidney support so voraciously. In the past prescription diets never seemed appetizing to dogs ( i had another pet years ago who needed the same). THey might hae changed their formula but she loves it and i add royal canin kibble and a very small amount of topper of 99%fat free turkey. i am very happy. now i wish after all these years i would get one single coupon from chewy. i have never ever gotten a coupon LOL
Veternarian recommended Renal diet for beginning stage kidney failure. I tried the D flavor any my Sheltie loves the E flavor much better. I also feed him the A flavor dry food. His last bloodwork was much better with his new medicine and the Royal Canin diet. No more protein in his urine and his high blood level had dropped considerably. His Doctor was very happy with the results, and my Sheltie will livevmuch longer on this new treatment plan. He still is remains in Stage II kidney failure, but his bun and creantine levels dropped a little bit, instead of getting worse. I highly recommend this new food, as it really works!
We tried RC Renal Support D and RC Renal Support Early Start with Annie, our border collie. At first she tolerated RC Renal Support D for a couple of cans then turned her nose up at it. It has a lot of gravy and she's used to kibble and not sure how to eat the gravy. So, we switched to RC Renal Support Early Start since it came in half cans and is a loaf. She liked it for about a week and then turned her nose up at it as well. So, we tried Hills K/D chicken with vegetables which she ate 1 can and was finished with it. She is now eating RC Renal Support E which is a loaf but I have to mix a little home made ground beef, rice, pumpkin, apple and green beans with it to get her to eat it. She likes the flavor of beef so at least she's eating it. It's not easy always getting her to eat this bland food but so far RC Renal Support E is the winner.
If your precious pet needs support food for their kidney problem, this is the brand to buy. My little girl is a fussy eater but has taken to this food, gradually of course, much better than I anticipated. Our vet was pleased, she said dogs are usually more difficult to transfer to another flavor. It's more expensive than the other foods but worth it if it helps with the ailment of your pet.
We'd tried two other kidney diet foods by this time. This one is not as tasty as Royal Canin D but Jaffa will eat it, although I have to add a touch of normal dog food and beef stock for him to eat it, whereas with D he'll just eat it.
It took a long time for our dog to eat this without coaxing but we are finally there. Try as they might, I always end up with some cans that get dented in shipping but so far they seem to still be usable.
Our dog is a grazer - he'll leave his food out all day long eating whenever he's ready. Now he's older and has lost a few teeth. We tried this food after his last dental cleaning (and tooth extraction) and he loves it. He'll eat it immediately like it's a treat.
My Bogey has stage 3 Kidney disorder. Dr. Recommend this brand food to help him along. We will find out after his next blood test. It is very expensive, but anything to help Bogey is worth it. Please drop the price a little
My dog has renal impairment and needs a special diet and is very picky and I use a variety of brands to vary her diet and Royal Canin is my go to when she refuses other diets. Excellent quality.
Stevie loves this, he is actually eating it enthusiastically.
