Kidneys filter toxic waste products from the blood into the urine so that your cat can pee them away. If the kidneys aren’t working properly, waste products build up and cause illness. There are two types of kidney disease, ‘acute’ and ‘chronic’. This article focuses on chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Symptoms of chronic kidney disease include: drinking and peeing more than usual, weight loss, vomiting and eating less. There is no cure for kidney disease but there are many things that can be done to help, especially if it’s caught early.
