Kidney Disease



Kidney disease can occur in cats and dogs and, unfortunately, by the time it is detected usually 75 - 80% of the kidney function has been lost already.

Many animals, however, can go on to live comfortable lives with the help of medical support and careful monitoring.

 

How is kidney disease diagnosed?

One of the most useful tests performed is a full analysis of the urine which will indicate how well the kidneys are concentrating; it may also identify protein in the urine, which suggests the presence of kidney disease.

Alongside this, blood analysis will help aid our assessment of the disease as well as measuring blood pressure.
