Veterinary pharmaceutical firm Dechra has taken on the distribution of cat kidney health products Porus One and Add One.
Porus One contains renaltec as its active ingredient, a selective absorber that absorbs the precursors of uraemic toxins in the cat’s intestine that would normally be removed or regulated by healthy kidneys. The powder is a collection of miniature spheres covered in microscopic pores that harmlessly pass through the cat’s gut binding to the uraemic toxins. These toxins and spheres are then safely excreted into the cat’s faeces, according to the manufacturer.
Porus One can be taken daily sprinkled on wet cat food or given with its sister product, Add One, as a treat. Add One is a moist cat treat for senior cats to help support kidney health and is particularly helpful for cats that prefer dry food. It is available in two flavours, creamy salmon and tasty liver and contains omega-3 as well as taurine to support a cat’s eyes and heart.
Sarah Musgrave, companion animal brand manager at Dechra, said: “Chronic kidney disease is one of the most common conditions affecting older cats and it is estimated that approximately 80% of cats aged 15 plus have the disease.
“Porus One, with the support of Add One, offers breakthrough daily kidney support for cats and is ideal for senior cats to support long-term kidney health.”
One box of Porus One contains 30 single-dose sachets, each containing 500mg of renaltec. One box of Add One contains 30 single-dose 10mg sachets.
