Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 is a complete food for dogs suffering chronic kidney problems including early renal failure.
Specially formulated to be incredibly palatable, even to the most reluctant eater, Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 provides increased nutritional support to dogs to maintain their health after kidney failure.
How it works
Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 is designed to manage the effects of renal failure in dogs.
After chronic renal failure, the kidneys are often unable to properly eliminate phosphorous. This phosphorous retention can often lead to secondary hyperparathyroidism – a disease of the glands that can sometimes cause poor bone health – and the progression of renal failure. The recipe is designed to keep your pet from getting too much phosphorous, mitigating the effects of the kidney’s reduced function and cutting the chance of secondary hyperparathyroidism.
Renal failure can also sometimes lead to urinary conditions. Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 is designed to combat these by helping to maintain an acidic urinary pH, which limits the chance that infection-causing bacteria will develop. It also increases urine volume, which decreases the concentration of the struvites and calcium oxalates that can cause urinary infections. In high concentrations, struvites can crystallise and cause serious infection.
The diet is enriched with a high level of omega-3 long chain fatty acids, which help your cat's kidneys to filter blood. This is important as increased blood levels can cause further kidney failure.
Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal Rf 14 is designed to be extremely palatable to encourage your dog to keep eating in spite of the reduced appetite that often accompanies renal failure, allowing them to maintain a healthy weight and energy levels.
- limits phosphorous intake to mitigate the effects of secondary hyperparathyroidism
- combats the development of urinary conditions by increasing urine acidity and volume
- enriched with omega-3 long chain fatty acids to encourage blood filtering and restore some kidney function.
When to use it
Renal failure is particularly common in older dogs and can often be identified by symptoms including anorexia, diarrhoea, and extreme lethargy. Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 is a complete dog food and is designed to be used for the duration of your pet’s life following their diagnosis with renal failure.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Canine Veterinary Diet Renal RF 14 to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Very pleasedI've used Pet Supermarket for long time. Being advised to buy a renal support diet for my dear old Collie, I was pleased to be able to buy this. First class service, speedy delivery and good prices too.
Royal canin renal wet 12 tinsOur Jack Russell had some blood tests done years ago as he was drinking a lot and being sick. The results came back and our vet recommended he was put onto a renal diet to help the kidneys. I also used the dry renal rf14 2kg bag and just added a handful and put the small kibbles into a plastic bag and broke them up with a rolling pin/hammer so they were almost a powder and mixed it with the wet tin food and added some water so it wasn’t too dry. This diet really helped him.
