Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is one of the most common conditions we see in older cats. Signs can vary but will often include an increase in thirst, increased urination, a poor appetite and weight loss. This disease can be diagnosed with blood and urine tests.
Treatment consists of being fed a special prescription diet to help support the kidneys and medication may be introduced at the time of diagnosis or at a later stage.
We recommend regular blood and urine tests for our CKD patients to monitor the progression of the condition and to adjust treatment accordingly.
As with many conditions we see, an early diagnosis is important so if your cat are displaying these symptoms, then please contact us on 01554 772097 to make an appointment to see one of our vets.
