Product Information

Royal Canin Veterinary Renal Special is scientifically formulated to support renal function in cases of chronic kidney disease. Formulated with low phosphorus and a moderate level of highly digestible protein to support renal function, helping to improve quality of life. With an adapted energy content to reduce meal volume and help compensate for a decreased appetite. And a specific aromatic profile with a dedicated kibble shape to help stimulate the cat's appetite, particularly in cases of food aversion.
Renal diets are recommended as soon as creatinine goes out of reference range (from CKD late stage 2), before the disease further progresses, and before inappetence develops. In case of food aversion, the cat can be switched to another renal option without transition. After commencing a Renal diet, in addition to periodic measurement of renal biomarkers, blood mineral level monitoring is also recommended. In cases of diet induced hypercalcaemia, the cat should be switched to Early Renal diet. Other mineral disturbances (eg. hypokalaemia) may require additional treatment. In most cases, Renal diets may be continued for the cats lifetime. It is recommended that a full health check be performed every 6 months.

    Cat loves the biscuits

    My cat with stage 3 ckd has transferred onto the renal diet with little success with the wet pouches of food. So we feed him his normal wet food with ipakitin phosphorus binder. Luckily he really likes the royal canin and Hills renal dry biscuits. What a relief!!

    Best Renal Dietary dry food

    I have had two cats pass from renal failure and they would not touch any of the renal foods that the vet gave me to sample. One of my cats has just been diagnosed with the beginnings of renal failure and the vet gave me two packs of RC to try and one other. Well they both gobbled down the Special biscuits, they also ate the other RC food and would not touch the other one. I asked the vet for another sample of the Special (cats are fickle!) and he gave me two samples which again were gobbled up. The great thing is that my other cat also loves these biscuits so we are all impressed!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dry diets should be stored in their original bags and resealed between feeding. Most small bags include a re-sealable zipper. If the bag does not have this feature, it’s recommended to keep the product in the original bag and store in a dry, airtight plastic or steel container with a lid.

For dry diets, palatability of the kibble remains at its best for one month after the bag is opened, however will be fine for up to two months so long as the bag is stored properly, in a cool, dry, airtight container.

Introducing your pet onto a new diet should done gradually over 5 - 7 days to avoid the possibility of digestive upset. We suggest:


    Mix 25% of your new diet with 75% of your pet’s previous diet for 2 or 3 days

    Then mix the two diets 50% and 50% for 2 or 3 days

    Then mix 75% of the new diet with 25% of the previous diet for 2 or 3 days

    You can now try feeding with 100% of the new diet.
