Your Vet will usually need to list PurinoPro, Hills, and Royal Canin feline Kidney Care diets on the prescription. Each has slightly different amounts of phosphorus, Potassium, and other key ingredients that may make one brand better for your cat than another, depending on what Stage of failure she is in and her Test numbers. That is fine and dandy, but most people just want to go with whatever brand of kidney food their cat actually eats, and without puking it back up. PetSmart/Banfield issued me a separate paper card for each brand on my original prescription, which seemed odd. I was told it is also NOT tied to my Petsmart Account phone number so as to pop up at checkout (which is stupid), so the card must be brought every time Rx food is purchased.
