WILTON, Conn. – Blue Buffalo Company announced the launch of KS Kidney Support for dogs and KM + Mobility Support for cats at the American Veterinary Medical Association annual convention in San Antonio, Texas, Aug. 5 -9. Veterinarians and animal nutritionists formulated the products to help manage kidney disease in pets.
Both new items from Blue Buffalo feature controlled protein levels to help control clinical signs of uremia in dogs and cats; controlled levels of phosphorus to limit the progression of kidney disease; and controlled sodium levels to increase survival time of pets with existing renal issues.
“Blue Buffalo is proud to introduce another natural choice in nutritional therapy for pets with specific medical conditions,” said Bill Bishop, founder and chairman of Blue Buffalo. “Our new Kidney Support for dogs and Kidney + Mobility for cats are important additions to our line of veterinary-exclusive natural therapeutic diets.”
KS Kidney Support for dogs and KM Kidney + Mobility for cats contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA and are complete and balanced diets, according to the company.
“New KS for Dogs and KM for Cats are formulated to help manage kidney disease, and KM also provides mobility health benefits,” said Victoria Carmella, DVM, director of veterinary services at Blue Buffalo. “BLUE Natural Veterinary Diets combine expertise in clinically-proven science for each therapeutic indication with our deep experience formulating natural pet foods preferred by many clients.”
All of Blue Buffalo’s Natural Veterinary diets are made with meat and do not contain chicken or poultry by-product meals. Similar to Blue Buffalo’s entire line, the new products contain no corn, wheat, soy, artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.
