Commonly prescribed for cats with the advance stages of Kidney Disease

In recent decades, cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have been managed with diets restricted in protein. However, cats are carnivores and a species with high protein requirements*1,2. As medical advances make earlier disease detection possible, cats with CKD may benefit from dietary strategies that better align with their nutritional needs.
NF Kidney Function Advanced Care™ has been formulated with reduced amount of high-quality protein to minimize the production of filtered nitrogenous waste products.
