RC renal support is a great diet for dogs and cats with chronic kidney disease, it prolongs life and it's arguably the most important part of the treatment.
Dogs who suffer ARF are anorexic and in most cases they're feed through through some type of feeding tube, at the moment there no pointers as to which type of diet is most beneficial in these cases, and there is no indication that renal support diet change the outcome. Current recommendation for enteral feeding of dogs with ARF is to use diets for critically ill patients, like Royal Canin Recovery.
One possible outcome of ARF is chronic kidney disease, in which case this type of diet is essential for well-being and survival of your pet.
