Standard Process Canine Renal Support | Kidney Health For Dogs

By Dr. Candy Akers

Kidney disease can be scary. You get the bloodwork results, you get a serious talk with a vet. Conventional vets can sometimes be kinda negative when they discuss this type of illness. And all the terminology sounds horrible....."failure", "disease", "chronic", "stage 3" what? On top of that, the only treatment that they recommend is that you buy an expensive bag of food that smells like old french fries. Sound familiar?

I've been treating pets with kidney disease with natural supplements for years. And with the right plan, your pup can FEEL BETTER and those blood test values can decrease significantly. The supplement that I use the most is called Canine Renal Support and it is made by Standard Process

The following information is a summary and review based on Dr. Candy’s professional experience and recommendations. Any summary or statement has not been provided nor influenced by the manufacturer.

Dr. Candy And Other Holistic Veterinarians Use Canine Renal Support For: 

  • Kidney disease 
  • Urinary bladder crystals and stones
  • Liver dysfunction
  • Kidney stones
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic UTIs
  • Toxin ingestion 

Canine Renal Support Benefits

  • Prevention of urinary tract infections
  • Improve body detoxification 
  • Aids in the prevention of urinary bladder stones
  • Maintain optimal hydration
  • Reduction of urinary incontinence severity
  • Reduce progression of current kidney disease
  • Outstanding source of complete vitamins the way nature intended
  • Easier to absorb natural forms of vitamins and minerals

DR. CANDY'S PRO-TIP:In early kidney disease, by adding this supplement and adjusting diet protein quality can often display blood chemistry values that indicate kidney function improvement. I focus on protein quality, not quantity, and use canned food and other hydration techniques.

More About Canine Renal System Support

For renal challenges, not only should the kidneys be supported but consideration should also be given to support of the liver, cardiovascular system, and autonomic nervous system.

Canine Renal System Support is formulated to:

  • Provides support for the normal function of the kidneys
  • Supports the liver, cardiovascular system, and autonomic nervous system*

Indications for Use: 

  • Patients in need of renal support
  • Hepatic patients in need of additional renal support

How to Administer

Dose Schedule:Based on body weight, the canine patient should receive the canine formula powder according to the following recommendations, or as otherwise directed.


Special Information:

A 1/8 tsp scoop is included with the small canine powder bottles, and a 1/2 tsp scoop is included with the large canine powder bottles.

Since these supplements are made from super foods, they are very "rich". This allows us to use small doses, but sometimes when adding a brand new savory food pets can experience a soft stool for 12-24 hours. This situation balances itself but I have found that using a gradual taper greatly reduces the chance of loose stool.

Please consult the actual product label for the most accurate product information.

My 16 year old chihuahua is in need of this supplement and I mix it in with his wet food. I think he actually likes his wet food more with this in it. No tummy issues for him and his vet says his kidney levels are looking good! I will keep this in his diet!

This has really helped my little Italian Greyhound with her PLN. She's fed really well with cooked chicken, veggies and supplements but I'm still giving her this as an extra boost. So far it's been great news at the vet, every 2 months when we go check her urine for protein, and it's going down!!!! Her blood work is also better and better each time! Been using this for over 6 months now and couldn't be more happy with it

Questions & Answers

What are the side effects of Canine Renal Support?

Since these nutritional supplements are made from food, there is little to no risk of side effects. The only side effect I’ve ever seen is diarrhea if the pet gets a gigantic dose. For example, if a pet eats a whole bottle. If I had a dollar for every time one of my pets ate a whole bottle, I’d have a pretty full piggy bank. Since pets love these products so much, we recommend keeping them in a cabinet or someplace that your pet cannot get to.

How much Canine Renal Support should my dog take?
  • 1-10 lbs 1/8 teaspoon once per day
  • 11-20 lbs 1/8 teaspoon twice per day
  • 21-40 lbs ¼ teaspoon twice per day
  • 41-60 lbs ½ teaspoon twice per day
  • 61-80 lbs ¾ teaspoon twice per day
  • > 80 lbs 1 teaspoon twice per day
