Unfortunately my cat is on a renal diet. Of all the products we've tried, this is the best. It's firmer than the others and isn't a paste. It also doesn't seem to taste too bad. Like all renal diets, the ingredients aren't really ideal for cats. There's too little meat and it contains grain instead, which cats aren't supposed to eat.
My two cats have kidney disease but I want to offer them more variety than the single type of food that we can get from the vet. If you feed any food for too long, your cat will lose interest in it, however good it tastes. But this is definitely one of the foods that my cats most enjoy eating. I'd still be interested to know what the difference is between food that you can buy in pet store and the stuff you can only get from the vet.
Our rescue cat suffers from struvite stones. Of all the different food brands for cats with renal problems, he likes this one best. It's just a shame that there's not much choice of flavours, but that's generally true for all the manufacturers. Healthy cats get a whole range, with everything from chicken and duck to beef, rabbit, tuna and shrimp. But when your cat's ill, you only get a choice of two or three flavours. And that's it. So we've now switched to serving our cat "normal" wet food and supplementing it with a daily tablet to acidify his urine. It's not much different for humans. ;-) In any case, he now eats well again and enjoys his food. He's more active, drinks more water, has a beautiful glossy coat and seems very happy (which wasn't the case before).
After struggling to find a renal diet that my cat enjoyed eating, we're both delighted with this food. My cat thinks it's especially tasty, and even enjoys the 300g packs. I'm really pleased that she's eating well again and that this food isn't very expensive!
When my cat didn't accept the food we'd got from the vet (Hill's k/d), I was really glad when she ate this instead. Great combined with Kattivit Low Protein.
My 20-year-old cat is very satisfied with this food!! I've tried lots of different varieties from the vet but without long-term success. I'm glad that she's finally eating properly again. Thanks, zooplus.
My 15-year-old cat has had problems with urinating and an inflamed bladder (struvite stones) for more than four years. I give her regular medication to adjust the acidity of her urine and feed her veterinary dry food we get from the vet. For a bit of variety, I used to treat her to a different special diet wet food every now and then, but she never liked it - not even the most expensive varieties. Beaphar Renal Diet is the first one that she's really enjoyed eating. She finishes it off in seconds and licks the bowl clean. I can't say anything about it's effectiveness - but until now I haven't noticed it having any negative effects and she hasn't got any worse. The food doesn't give her the runs and she doesn't have any problems urinating either. Mii-chan and I are very impressed, thank you!
My elderly cat (25 years old) has had kidney disease for the last 8 years. I got food from the vet, which she ate for a long time, but now she turns her nose up at it. I've just discovered these small trays and now my cat is eating again. Because she only eats very small portions, she manages to finish off one of these trays in two sittings. It means it doesn't go off and I don't need to throw anything away anymore. So thanks for offering this size portion - my cat and my bank account really appreciate it.
