For optimum feline renal health, detect, protect, and connect
Make early renal screening a part of your regular feline patient plan. Because there are no clear first signs of kidney disease, an early check-up and regular follow-ups are the only way to diagnose and effectively manage chronic kidney disease along with a specially adapted nutritional solution.
Your early diagnosis, together with appropriate management and nutrition, can help maintain a pet's quality of life.
