Royal Canin Veterinary Diet® Canine Renal Support A dry dog food

Cats and dogs with CKD can often have waxing and waning appetites. Since pets rely on more than just taste when determining what they will eat, ROYAL CANIN® RENAL SUPPORT diets include several aromatic profiles along with kibble texture, shape and size that can help stimulate decreased appetites. Available in multiple aromatic profiles, in both wet and dry food, the diets can be easily mixed or rotated to provide multiple feeding options.

  • 3 dry and 3 wet options for both cats and dogs providing 9 different feeding combinations
  • All RENAL products have similar nutritional profiles, easing the transition when introducing product rotations without concern for digestive upset
  • Click here to view feeding combinations based on the dry options A, S, F and wet options E,T,D

Renal Support A dry is a high energy and highly digestible diet for dogs that has been formulated with low protein and low phosphorus levels and is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Renal Support A dry dog food is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Dog Food EVER!!! Our vet prescribed this food for our three senior dogs and I have to admit I was skeptical. However, the difference in my dogs was almost immediate! I truly believe that your food is a large part of the reason our senior dogs are still with us. Their health improved almost immediately and they are all three doing very well. Only one has to take any medicine for their kidneys. I tell everyone I meet about your wonderful food and the difference it has made for our precious furry family members. Thank you for a wonderful product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality ingredients disappointed that a vet recommends this and then you read the ingredients. Corn gluten meal, chicken by product (complete garbage, was an actual waste product until they found a niche to sell to dog food companies), wheat gluten, dried beet pulp- ALL CHEAP INGREDIENTS, not healthy for a sick dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food! My dog has one kidney and his SDMA levels we’re going up every 6 months for the last 2 years. I started the food and checked his levels 6 months later and they were exactly the same as 6 months earlier. I’m going to check again soon and I’m im confident hey will be the same or barely have moved. He also loves this food and he’s not food motivated. Even my cats try to eat his food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Our two retired guide dogs, who are almost 14 years old, have been helped greatly by this diet. With renal disease, sometimes our dogs don't feel like eating. This has enough flavor and texture to appeal to them most of the time; they have been able to obtain their weight on the Royal Canin renal support products because they seem to really like them!l

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog Loves this! My 45 points rescue is over 15 years old and is a very picky eater. We tried other brands of prescription food, but she wouldn't eat it. This is her 4th bag of Royal Canin and she still loves it. It is no longer a struggle to get her to eat. Thank you, Royal Canin!
