Abstract

Studies in rodents indicate that diet influences progression of renal failure. Excessive dietary intakes of protein, fat, energy and phosphorus have been implicated in promoting progression of renal failure, while restriction of some or all of these dietary constituents limits progressive renal injury. Studies confirm that renal failure is progressive in some dogs with moderate-to-advanced renal dysfunction. Recent studies also indicate that unrestricted intakes of protein promotes proteinuria in dogs and cats and glomerular injury in cats.
