Cat Chronic Kidney Disease Advice & Care
What signs should you look out for when it comes to kidney failure in cats?
As with humans, cats' kidneys filter the blood and remove waste products; in doing so they produce urine. When this function is not optimal there's a risk for the development of kidney disease in cats.
Chronic kidney disease in cats
- Weight loss
- Drinking and urinating more than usual
- Loss of appetite
- Dull, matted coat
- Sleeping more than normal
- Lack of grooming
- Dull eyes
- Bad breath
Unfortunately, none of these signs are specific to chronic kidney disease in cats, so your vet may need to do a number of tests to find out what is causing them.
