Kidney Disease in Pets

If your pet exhibits any of these symptoms, talk to your veterinarian immediately:
• Increased thirst and need to urinate
• Loss of appetite and weight loss
• Weakness and exercise intolerance
• Bad breath
       If diagnosed with CKD, your veterinarian may recommend changing
      your pet's diet. Low protein, low phosphorus, and low sodium diets
     have been proven to be helpful in lessening the stress on the kidneys.
    Your vet may also recommend intravenous or subcutaneous fluids to
   rehydrate and stabilize your pet. Other medications for various
  symptoms, including high blood pressure, nausea, diarrhea and anemia
 may be prescribed.

After the diagnosis of CKD is made, the disease will eventually progress. With the treatments listed above, your pet can have a good quality of life and a potentially extended lifespan. It is important to adhere to the recommendations of your veterinarian, as well as to bring your pet back for routine re-checks. This may be every few weeks, if the disease is severe enough, to every six months or one year, if the disease is caught early. Adjustments in medication and treatments will be made accordingly, depending on the results of the re-checks.
