Royal Canin Renal is a nutritional support diet for dogs suffering from renal insufficiency and failure. The food contains reduced phosphorous levels for the benefit of dogs with chronic renal failure that are unable to break down phosphorous in the body. With green tea polyphenols to neutralise free radicals and encourage renal perfusion, helping to promote the health and function of internal systems, as well as long-chain omega 3 fatty acids to improve the condition of skin and coat, for a healthier looking dog. A digestible and palatable recipe to suit even the fussiest canine appetites.

Wet renal


My dog is not too keen on the renal wet food, he's a fussy eater and I have to try and disguise the meat with something else is it ok to do this? As he likes boiled chicken and sweet potato I've mixed a small amount with his meat.

  • Non-Executive Director

Ideally you should feed the renal diet with nothing else. The most important thing however is that your dog eats enough to keep him going. If that means that you have to add things to it then so be it, but you should aim to keep them to a minimum. As it happens, both chicken and sweet potato are acceptable for him to eat, as long you do not add lots of chicken and increase the percentage of protein in his diet too much. Life is a compromise...

Royal Canin Renal Dry

Martin Pike

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Wiltshire, United Kingdom

What is the difference between RF 16 and RF 14

  • Meds Supervisor


Thank you for your question,

The difference between the RF 16 and the R4 13 is the Royal Canin Renal Special diet (RF13) has been created with a specially formulated aromatic profile to provide a different taste, aroma and texture to the standard Renal diet.

The benefits to kidney health and reducing their workload will be quite similar.

I have attached the benefit lists here so you can compare RF16

and the RF13 here.

Wet/dry mix

Liz Dale

Rosy weighs 30-35kg what amount of mix food should she have daily. I have been advised 1+1/2 wet and 1 cup dry daily. This seems a lot, and she has put on weight.
Is it okay to reduce her to 1 tin wet 1 cup dry daily please?. With a few dry as treats.

  • Non-Executive Director

The correct amount to feed is actually the amount of food which produces the correct body weight. This you can only discover by trial and error, and adjusting the amount as indicted in time by her weight. It would be perfectly safe and sensible to try the amount you feel is right, then see how she does. Weigh her periodically and see how she compares with what you feel would be her ideal weight (your vet or vet nurse can help with this).
