Chronic kidney disease is unfortunately a common cause of illness in older cats just as it is in people. Early signs of kidney disease can be very subtle, but can progress to weight loss, reduced appetite, lethargy, increased thirst and urination, vomiting and bad breath. Diagnosis of kidney disease usually involves a combination of blood and urine tests. Unfortunately, there is no cure for kidney disease, but early detection allows us to implement treatments which may slow the progression of disease and improve quality of life, such as special diets, increasing water intake and medications where required.
