Kidney disease is a leading cause of death in dogs and cats. Signs of this disease don’t appear until 75% of the kidney tissue is lost, which is why regular blood and urine screenings are recommended. When kidney disease is detected early, pets often live many years with treatment.
Cats or dogs with early kidney disease typically show no outward signs, although a simple blood and urine test will reveal the truth. Changing to a veterinary therapeutic diet can make a big difference in your pet’s health, quality of life and lifespan.
