Specific CKD Heart and Kidney Support Canine Dog Food - 13KG, 2.5KGSpecific CKD Heart & Kidney Support has unique high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA derived from fish oil. In dogs with cardiac disease EPA counteracts cachexia, improves arrhythmia andreduces hypertension and platelet aggregation. In dogs with kidney failureomega-3 fatty acids help to slow down the progression of kidney failure.
In congestive heart failure, sodium excretion is reduced as part of the compensatory response to the reduced cardiac output and consequently sodium and water retention occurs. The reduced sodium level helps to break the vicious circle of water retention (hypertension and oedema). This is essential for both kidney, liver and heart patients.
A restricted content of phosphorus is essential to prevent hyperphosphataemia and to slow down the progression of kidney insufficiency.
The reduced content of protein in combination with protein of high biological value and an alkaline pH reduces azotemia in dogs with renal failure. In dogs with liver failure it reduces the likelihood of hyperammonaemia and possible hepatic encephalopathy. The high biological value of the proteins supplies a sufficient amount of essential amino acids to the dog.
The restricted protein level reduces the urinary concentrations of oxalate, cystine and urate. Together with the alkaline urine pH, this prevents precipitation of urinary calcium oxalate, cystine and urate crystals. Added potassium citrate reduces the risk of calcium oxalate precipitation.
