SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support
SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support for cats is the ideal diet for all stages of chronic renal failure having been formulated to:
- slow down the progression of renal failure and enhance survival rates due to a restricted phosphorus content, which prevents increased levels of phosphorus in the blood. Blood levels of phosphorus which are too high would cause further damage to the kidneys
- reduce the workload of the kidneys because the protein content is restricted. A restricted protein level means that less waste is generated which needs to be excreted by the kidney. Lower levels of waste in the blood also reduce the pet's feeling of nausea and vomiting, which can often be prevented
- ensure that your pet receives enough essential amino acids through the use of proteins of high quality
- combat hypertension due to a reduced sodium content.
- slow down the progression of renal failure thanks to increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids
- prevent deficiency of water soluble vitamins as the levels of these vitamins are increased
- prevent loss of bodyweight and anorexia due to the excellent palatability
The protein content in SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support is restricted in order to reduce the production of protein metabolites and thereby minimise azotemia in dogs with renal failure. By providing protein of high biological value, the amino acid requirements of the patient are met despite the restricted protein content.
The phosphorus content of SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support is reduced in order to prevent hyperphosphataemia and the progression of renal insufficiency. The dietary level of n-3 fatty acids is increased (especially in the SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support wet diet) to slow down the progression of renal failure in kidney patients.
The exceptional palatability of SPECIFIC™ Kidney Support maximises the chances that the nutritional requirements are met, even if the pet has a poor appetite.

Great tasteThis is the first renal food I have found for my cat where she licks the bowl clean, and at her last check up she had actually put on weight. The SPECIFIC food smells great and has more moisture than other pate style renal diets. A great find.
It helps!My cat had to go onto the kidney support wet food as she has advanced kidney failure, Initially she loved it but she is a very picky eater and went off it after a while. At her last urine test there was no protein which was fantastic. She's just started going off her other food and being interested in this again. It is expensive and it annoys me that pet owners are taken advantage of, but I can say it is a very good product. Four stars, they lose one due to cost. Pet supermarket was the cheapest supplier and there is the loyalty scheme too. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend them as a supplier.
Excellent productMy vet recommended this food for my two cats who both have kidney problems. This food has definitely helped to improve their condition. They have stopped weeing in the house and they love the food.
Didn't go down well.I took a chance on this product after reading another review by someone saying they were reluctant to buy it due to having to buy a large quantity but were glad they did as their cat loves it. My cat nibbled a little bit of the first tray but then completely turned his nose up at any more I put down. The whole lot will now be thrown away! My cat is a fussy eater so some cats may like it but beware.
The best Kidney Support food everWe have one cat Frankie who needs this for his kidney's support he is a fussy eater but he actually loves this food and the texture. However the other two cats also try to have his food and in a test offering normal and SPECIFIC they choose SPECIFIC! Long may this last as Frankie does not want to suffer by having other types of food. Speedy delivery and efficient service
