(Kidney Support Supplement)

Renal Essentials has been formulated with key factors which help maintain optimal kidney function, balance urine pH and mineral levels, normalize circulation, and strengthen the immune response to foreign material in the urinary tract and kidneys.

This advanced formula is a combination of synergistic factors that work to reduce homocysteine levels, improve renal blood flow, aid in detoxification, and promote proper mineral balance. Renal Essentials has been formulated to support the kidney's optimal function for the animal that needs prevention, maintenance, and care for stressed kidneys. Renal Essentials is a fish flavored chewable tablet which cats find very palatable.

Have used this formula on my 16 yr. old cat for 9 years on the advice of my veterinarian for the prevention of chronic kidney disease. His blood work has consistently shown normal kidney values, which I believe results from this supplement and a moderately low phosphorus/protein diet.

I am sorry to say that I had no need to use the product. Which turned out to be a good thing.

I think it would be good for a pet who has kidney problems. The ingredients sound healthy.

They are very hard and my cat won't eat them.

my oldest cat (8 years) started passing blood in her urine. She is a rescue and I took her to the vet frequently with dental issues and skin conditions when she was younger. However, as she has aged,
she has become a reclusive garage cat (my husband is badly allergic to cats) and trying to catch her to crate has proven almost impossible. She gets so stressed out, I hate to upset her. So I tried special diet food for urinary tract problems and give her the suggested dosage of these. It worked thankfully. She is also taking AminAvast and no more blood.

Several of our cats have died from renal failure. I am giving my 5-year-old cats 1 tablet of this supplement each day as a support for their kidneys, ongoing. They like the flavor of it, and consider it a treat.

My cat loves it

Our vet recommended this for our 8-year-old cat who's showing signs of kidney insufficiency. The tablets are easy to break in half, and our cat eats them as a treat. They're also easy to crush and mix with food. We haven't had new lab tests done since starting these, so we don't know if it's affecting our cat's kidney values, but he does seem more energetic overall.

I hoped these would help!

My 17 year old Male cat is mid way into renal failure. Hoping to find a supplement in addition to the Vet's med, I tried these. I had read good reviews about how the cats liked them, but even ground into food, he wouldn't touch it.
It may be just his finicky taste - I hope it works for others!!

I've been using this product for over two years on my 19 year old cat with kidney failure. We use a pill crusher and put it on top of her wet food. She likes the flavor and has had no side effects since we started her on it. We went almost a whole year on this product alone before having to go to using subcutaneous fluids along with other herbal supplements and probiotics.

Our 18 year old finicky cat
April 20, 2015
I have been giving our 18 year old cat this supplement for about 3 weeks now. She is slowly putting back on a bit of weight, she is urinating just a little bit less and she acts like she feels better. I am hopeful this trend will continue. She is an awesome cat!

What I find most amazing is that she will actually eat the tablets. No muss, no fuss she just eats them up when I give them to her, often times before I even get the canned food in her bowl. That makes me very happy.

I think it was money well spent, especially if she continues to improve.

I started to use this product for my cat 2 months ago and this really works well. She feels really good after the usage of this product. I strongly recommend for the cats with the kidney problems.

I grind up one of these pills every morning with an egg yolk and Vitamin E and give it to my old cat, Misty. She was just laying around and sleeping a lot before the pill but will now jump into my lap and play with her toys again.

Diabetes and chronic renal failure. Cat 13.5 years.
Since December 2013 creatinine became very high. CRF entered the terminal stage.
Prinmal started these vitamins. Growth stopped creatinine, hemoglobin normal.
I advise all owners of animals with kidney problems.

Using it for my elderly cat who has inflammatory bowel AND kidney disease. I give her 2 per day and she's holding steady. Vet says she's doing really well on this (along with a couple other meds). But I do think this helps.

Years ago, my cat Alexis had kidney disease. It was in its middle stages by the time she was diagnosed. Along with traditional veterinary medical care, I also used Renal essentials as my main wholistic supplement to give her. Within a month, her labs had changed. When she got off traditional meds, we kept her on the renal essentials and her lab tests stayed within normal limits for a while. We believed this product really did it. I have another kitty now - Sabrina. She is starting to exhibit similar symptoms and I just started to feed her the renal essentials. I was just about to make a vet appt. for her consistent thirst but after some time on this, that has alleviated.

I have to smash the tablet and sprinkle it over my cat's food.

good product
December 14, 2012
I think this is a good product. Rhumania 6 is a good herb (combo) for kidney support, plus there is other good ingredients such as adaptogenic herbs and "B" vitamins. My kitties did well on these for years, then part of them didn't want them anymore. I wish they came a little softer (they are kind of hard) and in a chicken flavor maybe. They make a soft chew I can get from my vet (they like those), but the dose is twice as many, AND twice the price. A $19 bag at that dose would last me 5 days given as recommended. Plus the soft chews have added ingredients that might not be as good health wise long term. Since it's almost inevitable that most kitties will have some degree of kidney issues if they live long enough, it's nice to have something like this.
Just wish it was easier for them to chew, and a flavor more of them would eat willingly.

My cat is 17 years old and he was urinating a lot more over the last few months, and I decided to give him a supplement to support his kidneys. It has helped him in so far as the amount seems to have reduced and he is doing well.

My cat who is 21+ yrs old started losing weight
slowly at first then started not eating and rapidly declining to the point where we thought he had only days left, after hours of frantic searching to find out if there was someway to save him I found
reviews of the Renal Essential's and with out a lot of hope I ordered an express delivery of one bottle in a 24 hour period I gave him 2 pills and he responded miraculously ! In 1 day he was eating again and more like himself and over six months later taking 2 pills a day he is alive and enjoying life:)
