Feline Kidney Disease | Symptoms, Causes, & Treatments | Dr. Bill’s Advanced Nutritional Support

Many cat owners are concerned about
kidney failure. While it is most prevalent in older cats, it can occur in cats of any age. Hello, I’m Doctor Bill Barnett. Let’s talk about feline kidney disease for a minute. One of the kidneys primary functions is to excrete the body’s waste products. If your cat’s kidneys begin to fail, waste
can build up in the bloodstream causing a buildup of toxic substances. So how can you tell if your cat is experiencing kidney problems? Here’s a list of symptoms you should look for. They may indicate your cat is in early stages of kidney failure or chronic renal failure. Those symptoms are: loss of appetite,
gradual weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea, lethargy or depression, dehydration, change in water consumption, sometimes litter box aversion, mouth ulcers, bad breath, bloody or
cloudy urine. So what can cause kidney problems in the cat? Infections anywhere in the body, high blood pressure, congenital or hereditary diseases, urinary obstruction
such as kidney stones immunological disease, cancer, decreased blood flow to the kidneys, kidney trauma, exposure to toxins especially antifreeze. There is no cure for renal failure, so
the best option is to do what you can to prevent the kidneys from becoming
damaged. Maintaining your cat in optimum health and managing their intake of protein, phosphorus, and sodium can help reduce the symptoms and add to your
pet’s overall health and longevity. To learn more about kidney failure and how to maximize your cat’s health, well-being, and life span I encourage you to read my full report on feline kidney disease that accompanies this video.
