Specific Adult Dog CKD Heart & Kidney Support, Dry food

- Heart failure, high blood pressure
- Chronic renal failure
- Hepatic insufficiency (except in patients with biliary obstruction)
- Urinary stone disease (urates, oxalates, cystines)

COMPOSITION CHARACTERISTICS AND RATIONALE
SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support is uniquely high in EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil. In dogs with heart failure, EPA helps maintain muscle mass and appetite, normal heart rhythm, blood pressure, and platelet aggregation. In dogs with kidney failure, omega-3 fatty acids help delay the progression of kidney failure.
Patients with heart failure have decreased sodium output as a response to the reduced cardiac output, resulting in sodium and water retention. The low sodium content helps to break the closed loop of fluid exchange (hypertension and edema). This is extremely important for patients with kidney and liver failure, as well as for heart failure.

Phosphorus restriction is necessary to prevent hyperphosphatemia and stop the progression of renal failure.
The reduced protein content with its high biological value reduces azotemia in dogs with renal insufficiency. Reduces the risk of hyperammonemia and hepatic encephalopathy in dogs with renal insufficiency. Proteins with high biological value fully supply the dog's body with amino acids.

The limited protein content reduces the content of oxalates, cysteines and urates in the urine. Together with the alkaline pH of the urine, this prevents the formation of calcium oxalate crystals, urates and cysteines in the urine and helps maintain urinary tract health. The risk of calcium oxalate formation is also reduced thanks to the potassium citrate present in the feed.

MORE INFORMATION
- To maintain the function of the heart muscle, taurine and L-carnitine are added to the feed.
- The feed has a high content of water-soluble vitamins and potassium to compensate for their excretion in the urine in patients with heart problems treated with diuretics.
- SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support contains zeolite, which binds ammonium, thereby helping to reduce uremia and hyperammonemia in dogs with renal failure.
- Zinc participates in the enzymatic conversion of ammonia into urea and has the ability to reduce protein catabolism in muscles. SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support has an increased zinc content, which can contribute to the reduction of hyperammonemia in patients with kidney disease.
- SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support has a reduced copper content, as patients with kidney problems may have impaired copper elimination from the body.
- The excellent taste properties of SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support feed create maximum prerequisites for the animal to receive the required amount of nutrients during the illness, when there is poor appetite.
- SPECIFIC™ CKD Heart & Kidney Support is specially packaged in a nitrogen environment, so the feed maintains a uniquely high level of EPA and DHA.

Why choose Heart & Kidney Support?

  • It contains high level of fish oil to support heart rhythm and normal blood pressure

  • Reduced protein content to lower workload on the kidney combined with proteins of high biological value to ensure your dog gets the nutrients it needs.
  • High levels of Omega-3 and restricted phosphorus content to support kidney function.
  • L-carnitine and taurine support the heart function.
  • Reduced salt content will support healthy blood pressure.
  • Reduced protein, added potassium citrate and the alkaline urine can help prevent the formation of calcium oxalate, urate or cysteine stones.
  • Packed under nitrogen to preserve the precious and fragile Omega-3 fish oils.

NOT RECOMMENDED
- For puppies and mothers during pregnancy or lactation
- For dogs with high protein needs
- For patients with biliary obstruction: a reduced-fat feed (such as SPECIFIC™ CRD Weight Reduction or CGD Senior feed) is more suitable
- In patients with struvite urolithiasis
- In dogs with hyperlipidemia or pancreatitis
