Royal Canin Renal Special (RSF 13) is a complete dietetic dry food for dogs which has been formulated to support renal function in cases of temporary or chronic renal insufficiency by providing high quality protein and low levels of phosphorus.

What is the difference between renal clinical and renal special


I have just received my latest order for renal food. I have been ordering renal clinical, but mistakenly ordered renal special for my dog who has chronic kidney disease. Is it ok to give the special food? What is the difference. Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

This should be a perfectly appropriate alternative food for your dog, though ideally you should check with your own vet regarding specialist diets for your dog. The main difference from your usual diet is the flavouring, the nutritional profile should be the same.

Renal diets


Is it ok to give my dog a daily carrot while on a renal diet.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes this is fine. Animal proteins are best avoided, but carrots are fine.
