Chronic kidney failure or chronic renal failure in dogs and cats is a major causes of illness and death in senior pets. Chronic kidney or renal failure can be caused by a diet heavy in processed food, as well as untreated dental infections which cause oral bacteria to travel throughout the body and cause liver, heart, or kidney infections.
A functioning urinary system, which includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra is absolutely vital to your cat or dog’s well being since it helps to:

-Produce hormones which help maintain blood pressure
-Help the body process vitamin D.
The combination of Tripsy and Milk Thistle will aid your pet suffering from Chronic Renal Failure by helping to inhibit further bladder infections, flush the kidney stones, and help alleviate symptoms of painful urination. As toxins build up in the body, Milk Thistle will aid in strengthening the liver, which will aid with removing toxins from the body.
