How Vets Treat Chronic Renal Failure In Cats

The first step in the management of feline CRF is to determine, if possible, the cause of the renal disease.

  • The most frequent histological finding in cats with CRF is chronic interstitial fibrosis.
  • Specific therapy for the primary renal disease should be employed whenever a cause is identified.
  • In the management of cats with CRF, the amount eaten is as important as what is eaten.
  • Dietary protein restriction should be employed to reduce the clinical signs of feline uremia.


Introduction to feline chronic kidney disease:


Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a frequent clinical finding, with increasing prevalence as cats age; it affects perhaps one-third of our geriatric feline patients (1). Given the complexity of the abnormalities observed in these patients, the management of feline CRF poses many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Despite this, the refinement of old treatments and the availability of new ones address some of the problems faced by veterinarians treating cats with CRF.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
