Notes on Bob Food:

Phosphate restriction is key for cats with CKD so we can either formulate a low-phosphate diet or select an OTC cat food relatively low in phosphorus. For this purpose, a phosphate content that is less than 100 mg per 100 kcal is ideal, especially in a cat with severe kidney disease.
