The kidney is a complex organ with many functions which means that kidney failure can result in many different kinds of complications, including the development of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and loss of lean muscle mass. Because of the risk of development of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, diets for pets with kidney failure should have reduced levels of sodium. The mechanisms of lean muscle mass loss in pets with kidney failure are complex and not fully understood, but may be due to altered blood acid-base balance due to accumulation of waste products, as well as reduced appetite.
K/d Kidney Care protects the kidneys with controlled phosphorus levels and targeted levels of high quality protein. It also has low sodium to support cardiovascular health.
