What is the difference between renal clinical and renal special

28th Jul 2015

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.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

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.

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

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

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