A smooth transition
Dogs with renal disease often experience appetite loss or may associate their current diet with feeling sick. Furthermore, many renal formulas lack palatability compared to adult maintenance diets. Our nutritionists paid special attention to the palatability of our renal formula. Working closely with pet owners to correctly transition their dog to Diamond CARE Rx Renal Formula will further help avoid food aversion. The transition should take place gradually, over a period of 7 to 14 days.
Controlled phosphorus and sodium levels
Phosphorus retention by the kidneys is one of the first changes in mineral status with renal disease. The resulting hyperphosphatemia can lead to vitamin D deficiency as well as interfere with normal calcium regulation. Evidence shows that controlling serum phosphorus levels may help slow the progression of renal disease.1,2 That’s why one goal of canine kidney disease management is to normalize serum phosphorus concentration. Diamond CARE Rx Renal Formula is guaranteed to contain no more than 0.5% phosphorus.
Hypertension is a common clinical finding in dogs with kidney disease. Activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in response to hyperfiltration of sodium in the early stages of kidney disease promotes retention of sodium. Over time, the RAAS actually causes further injury to the kidneys. In combination with pharmacological intervention, controlling sodium intake is an important feature of the management of renal disease. Diamond CARE Rx Renal Formula is guaranteed to contain no more than 0.25% sodium.
