Dry Food For Cats With Renal Kidney Problems

A rare condition, renal amyloidosis almost always occurs in Abyssinian cats.
In IRIS CKD Stage 2 patients with low body condition scores, SDMA ≥25 µg/dl may indicate the degree of renal dysfunction has been underestimated. Consider treatment recommendations listed under IRIS CKD Stage 3 for this patient.
Aspiration of renal fluid and a  is another procedure which may be performed on your cat.
Chronic renal disease (CRD) is one of the most common diseases seen in older cats, reportedly affecting one in three cats over the age of 12 years. Complications of chronic renal disease include weight loss, , and .

SDMA concentrations in blood (plasma or serum) may be a more sensitive biomarker of renal function than blood creatinine concentrations. A persistent increase in SDMA above 14 µg/dl suggests reduced renal function and may be a reason to consider a dog or cat with creatinine values In IRIS CKD Stage 3 patients with low body condition scores, SDMA ≥45 µg/dl may indicate the degree of renal dysfunction has been underestimated. Consider treatment recommendations listed under IRIS CKD Stage 4 for this patient.In IRIS CKD Stage 2 patients with low body condition scores, SDMA ≥25 µg/dl may indicate the degree of renal dysfunction has been underestimated.

Most of the clinical signs of renal amyloidosis, notes Dr. Goldstein, are similar to those associated with serious kidney diseases in general—increased drinking and excessive urination; diminished appetite and weight loss; swollen limbs; and . “However,” he points out, “in cats with other types of chronic renal disease, we typically see small, shrunken kidneys. With amyloidosis, the kidneys will remain normal in size—and that will be a tip-off.”
