For Impaired Liver And Kidney Function: Cats, like dogs and other creatures, can suffer from kidney disorders. The normal kidney helps the body eliminate wastes from food proteins. If the proteins are of excellent quality, the kidneys don't need to work as hard to process the waste products generated by food proteins. Too much protein in a diet can strain diseased kidneys. Therefore, the amount of protein in a cat's diet should be reduced if he or she is suffering from weakened kidneys. Whatever protein a cat does eat should be of a higher quality.
The feline kidney diet (k/d) is a superior nutritional food made with specially selected and carefully balanced proteins. It may be fed to a cat over a long period of time. No other food should be offered to a cat with ailing or diseased kidneys, serious illness could result.
