How can the Renal Management System help?
Nutrition plays a critical role in managing the clinical signs and progression of kidney problems. Iams Veterinary Formula Renal -Early Stage Canine nutritionally manage progression with:
- patented Nitrogen Trap Fiber System, which diverts the waste products of protein metabolism from the bloodstream into the colon, thereby reducing the workload on the failing kidneys.
- omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid ratio targeting 5:1, which helps reduce intrarenal blood pressure, helps minimize inflammation, and helps slow progression.
- potassium citrate to counter the effects of metabolic acidosis, which occurs when the kidneys lose ability to filter waste products from the bloodstream.
- reduced phosphorous content compared with that in many maintenance diets.
