UTMB Galveston Chapter Preface As a researcher of mobbing in academic institutions, I follow up on cases I have analyzed and keep an eye out for apparent new ones, gathering thereby more data for suggesting and testing hypotheses about this momentous social process. Studying the news reports below and following the links is a good way to gain a grasp of academic mobbing as a field of scholarly inquiry and practical concern. Anyone looking for additional cases can search through the sources linked at left.
Feeding therapeutic kidney diets to other family cats Composition of Therapeutic Kidney Diets Everybody seems to know that these foods have reduced protein levels, and some people are aware that they also have reduced phosphorus levels.
Thus, simply replacing a renal diet with a standard manufactured diet that is lower in protein content does not meet the guideline of feeding a renal diet. Calorie Density Therapeutic kidney diets have a relatively high calorie content.
You can check the calorie content of some US foods here canned and here dry. Protein It is true that these foods are relatively low in protein. However, the key word there is "relatively": As you can see from the food data tablesthere are quite a lot of commercial non-therapeutic foods with a protein level as low as this, yet nobody refers to them as low protein foods.
What is important for CKD cats is that the protein is high quality protein.
I hear from people quite regularly who say that they think many therapeutic kidney diets contain poor quality ingredients, so how can the protein within them be considered high quality?
I explain more about high quality protein from a CKD perspective below. Phosphorus Therapeutic kidney diets are also relatively low in phosphorus. In contrast to the protein debate, nobody disputes the need to keep the phosphorus levels in foods fed to CKD cats as low as possible.
Phosphorus is a mineral essential for good health which is contained in many foods. The body is very good at regulating its phosphorus levels by removing excess phosphorus via the kidneys. However, the kidneys of a CKD cat can no longer efficiently excrete excess phosphorus, so the vast majority of CKD cats will develop levels of phosphorus in their blood which are too high, which can make the cat feel ill and make the CKD progress faster.
If you feed foods with a lower phosphorus content, this reduces the workload on the cat's damaged kidneys and reduces the risk of phosphorus levels in the cat's body rising too high. In practice, most therapeutic kidney foods have a phosphorus level of around 0. Essential Fatty Acids These foods contain increased levels of essential fatty acidswhich appear of increasing importance in the treatment of CKD.
Potassium Therapeutic kidney diets have added potassiumusually in the form of potassium citrate because this can help with metabolic acidosis. They are lower in sodium. They contain higher levels of B vitamins.
They usually contain additional fibre. The Benefits of Therapeutic Kidney Diets I often hear from people who have little enthusiasm for choosing foods from major cat food manufacturers, or who may not have been feeding their cat a commercial diet of any kind, and they are often surprised to hear that if I had a CKD cat, I would try to persuade him or her to eat a therapeutic kidney diet.
This is because therapeutic kidney diets are one of the few treatments with strong evidence that they are of benefit to CKD cats. Research indicates that therapeutic diets may: In one older study, Survival of cats with naturally occurring chronic renal failure: Some of the cats presumably in both groups were also given phosphorus binders.United States Courts Opinions GPO United States Courts Opinions (USCOURTS) collection is a project between the U.S.
