Virbac has launched a free app to aid in the management of cats and dogs with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and help vet professionals interpret patients’ results in line with latest guidelines.
An internationally recognised set of guidelines on the diagnosis and assessment of renal disease in small animals has been developed by the International Renal Interest Society
(IRIS). These guidelines are reviewed and updated regularly.
The app has been introduced following the launch of Pronefra for Cats and Dogs, a supplement for the support of renal function in the case of chronic renal insufficiency.
Simon Boulton, Virbac’s marketing manager for companion animals, explained: “Reference ranges supplied by machines and labs are not always appropriate for the renal patient so we wanted to help practices to interpret kidney-specific results quickly
and easily in line with the latest recommendations. The Pronefra app was the result.
“We have received very positive feedback on the app so far and hope it will help practices improve the quality and length of life of their renal patients.”
- The app is available for download on both the Play store and Apple store.
