Adjusted Urine pH
PRO-VET.® Renal/Oxalate complete and balanced specialized dry diet food for adult dogs of all breeds with a chronic kidney disease or with a pathogenesis of calcium oxalate (CaOx) stone formation (when urine is over-saturated with calcium and oxalate crystals); reduces oxalate stone formation, as well as the risk of a recurrence.

The progression of CRF can be diminished and thus survival of the patient be extended, but the condition cannot be healed. There is now a strong evidence that appropriate dietary management will enhance survival of cats with CRF. Phosphorus restriction leads to retardation of the loss of kidney function (Beynen, 2006). Apart from phosphorus restriction, the characteristics of a dietetic food for feline kidney patients are protein restriction, low sodium content, high potassium content, a moderately basic urinary pH and a high level of eicosapentaenoic acid. Clearly, restriction of essential nutrients may not cause a deficiency and the nutrient supply should be sufficient to allow normal body functionss.
An appropriate renal diet can only delay the progression of the loss of nephrons and increase survival time. Among commercially available renal diets for cats there are great differences in efficacy. The anticipated efficacy of PRO-VET.® Renal/Oxalate, which is based on its ideal composition, may be equivalent to an average survival time after diagnosis of about 30 months. It is likely, that PRO-VET.® Renal/Oxalate will be very effective in reducing the risk of development of CRF by healthy cats. The risk on chronic renal failure CRF has diminished by extra vitamin E, high EPA-level and particular low level of phosphorus.
