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

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.

Prescribed renal foodPrescribed by our vet to support a Kidney condition. Much to our surprise he likes it. If it does him good, it's worth the expense.
Very palatable veterinary dietMy 13 year old bedlington is stage 3 CKD, and I was concerned that she would not eat the veterinary food she needed. I was very pleasantly surpised. She loves RC Renal Dry Dog Food, and actually prefers it to her home cooked diet.
