What is Cardio-nephrology? 

This area encompasses products that treat or diagnose heart failure and chronic renal failure. Heart failure is defined as the inability of the heart to maintain cardiac output sufficient to meet the body's energy needs. Chronic renal failure is defined as the gradual, significant and permanent impairment of kidney function. It’s characterised by progressive destruction of kidney tissue.

Vetoquinol-supported research shows the two conditions are linked. And we believe they should form the same clinical picture.
