Story at-a-glance
One common and preventable trigger for the epidemic of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats is a processed dry food diet

The prescription “renal diets” recommended by many veterinarians are also dry processed diets that provide very little moisture and poor-quality protein to kitty patients in desperate need of food loaded with moisture and animal protein

Ideally, CKD cats should be fed excellent-quality, fresh food diets formulated specifically to address renal disease

There are also natural supplements that can be very beneficial for cats with CKD

I wouldn't touch ANY prescription "food" with a 10 foot poll. 

Wait...I lied.  I did once.  A canned version of limited ingredients something carp. I wanted to prove the issue my cat was having, was NOT due to feeding raw.
