This can be quite devastating for the health of your cat. The imbalances can cause anything from weight loss to lethargy to an increase in thirst. Though chronic renal failure is commonly seen in older cats, these symptoms can be linked to many illnesses and it is not uncommon for a cat to go undiagnosed for some time.

The balance comes naturally to your cat's system, helping it to thrive
wonderfully from the inside out. Many times, a commercial diet will add
vitamins and minerals to their product your cat cannot even assimilate or
use. This only adds to their decline. Low protein cat food is the best way to ensure your cat will truly get what it needs in every meal.
