Dechra has taken on the distribution of two innovative products to support kidney health in senior cats, Porus One and its sister product 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.
A breakthrough in the support of long-term kidney health, Porus One is an easy to administer powder that can be taken daily with food and is well accepted by cats due to its neutral taste and smell. 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.
Porus One can be sprinkled on wet cat food or given with its sister product, Add One, as a treat. Add One is a moist and tasty cat treat for senior cats to help support kidney health. It has been specifically developed to encourage cats to eat Porus One and is particularly helpful for cats that prefer dry food. It is available in two flavours, creamy salmon and tasty liver.
Add One contains omega-3 and a high moisture content, which is key to help support kidney health. It also contains taurine to support a cat’s eyes and heart.
“Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common conditions affecting older cats and it is estimated that approximately 80% of cats aged 15 plus have the disease1,” comments Sarah Musgrave, companion animal brand manager at Dechra.
“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.
