Royal Canin this month released a line of dual-purpose pet foods called Multifunction.
Made for dogs and cats, the veterinary-exclusive diets are formulated to manage urinary tract disease and obesity, lower urinary tract disease and food sensitivity, or chronic kidney disease and food sensitivity. A fourth recipe, for cats only, targets lower urinary tract disease and anxiety.
“Precise nutrition aids in the management of many common conditions,” said Brent Mayabb, the St. Charles, Mo., company’s vice president of corporate affairs.
Nearly half of all pets suffer from multiple health conditions, Royal Canin reported.
The cat diet is named Urinary + Calm. The others are Urinary + Satiety, Urinary + Hydrolyzed Protein, and Renal Support + Hydrolyzed Protein.
