PURINA VETERINARY DIETS NF is a tasty complete veterinary diet for cats with chronic kidney disease. PVD NF contains restricted amounts of phosphorus as this mineral can build up in kidney patients and has been shown to contribute to progression of the disease. It also contains limited amounts of high quality protein to help reduce the build-up of toxins which make patients feel unwell, while helping to maintain muscle mass. Omega-3 fatty acids also help to maximise the natural anti-inflammatory processes and reduce in blood pressure inside the kidney. Note that PVD NF is not suitable for cats that require a high protein or phosphorus intake such as pregnant queens and growing kittens.
