Kaminox is a highly palatable liquid nutritional support for cats with chronic renal failure and other disorders resulting from low potassium blood levels. It contains additional B-vitamins and essential amino acids for nutritional support.
The kidney is essential for life. It is involved in elimination of waste products, water and electrolytes homeostasis, the production of erythropoietin and vitamin D synthesis. Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a progressive decline in the function of the nephrons, and is the end point of a number of different disorders. It is a major cause of mobility and mortality amongst mid to old aged cats.
Unfortunately, clinical signs are only evident when 75% of the renal function have been lost. Once CRF is diagnosed it is imperative to prevent further damage and maintain normal function of the remaining renal tissue. A large percentage of cats diagnosed with CRF have hypokalaemia, which results in metabolic imbalances and neuro-muscular disorders. It is hypothesised that hypokalaemia may be one of the initiating causes of CRF. Additionally cats with CRF break down muscle proteins to use as an energy source, and loose and water soluble vitamins in their diluted urine. This leads to weight loss and uraemia.
