KIDNEY SUPPORT FOR CATS - an overview
Feline kidneys are very sensitive. They can be easily damaged by poor diet, environmental toxins, urinary tract infections, some prescription medications and, in the latest thinking, even vaccines.
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a progressive deterioration of kidney function and is one of the most likely causes of death in older cats. Unfortunately by the time we see symptoms of renal insufficiency, usually 60-75% of kidney mass is lost and the damage is irreversible.
Prevention and early detection are vital. If your cat is over the age of 7 it is a good idea to have your veterinarian check for CRF at each annual visit.
In addition to traditional medical treatment, some natural approaches are proving effective in helping to slow the progression of kidney failure and alleviating some symptoms associated with the disease. With early detection and treatment, including proper nutrition and hydration, many cats with compromised kidney function can live happy lives for quite some time.
At Pet NutriSystems we encourage a proactive approach to pet health. It is the best way to protect our pets and keep them healthy.
