Product details

SPECIFIC Canine 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.

Key Benefits:

  • 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.

  • Miraculous !
    My elderly Staffie has been on this diet for severeal months. Wow! What a transformation! She pesters me for her breakfast first thing, then raring to go for a walk and again in the afternoon. Her excessive drinking has stopped completely and her skin problems are much better. I highly recommend Specific. She also enjoys the taste and small kibble size.

  • I have a 14.5 year old large dog who has to be the fussiest dog in the whole wide world, sadly he suffers from renal failure and many renal foods are very bland and Merlin will not even look at them, but he absolutely loves the Specific, he actually goes straight to his bowl and eats it, he almost finishes all but needs a bit of encouragement to empty his bowl in its entirety. I have had nearly a year of force feeding him, I am so glad I found his food, I actually bought it by accident, a very lucky accidt

  • Really works
    This product is fantastic. My old boy of 15 years has been diagnosed with kidney problems and this is the special diet food we were advised to use. Certainly helps to reduce the weeing problem a lot.
