Prolonging Cats with Kidney Disease Life

Kidney disease is not a good diagnosis when it comes to our feline friends. It a disease that has no cure but there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Two of my cats were diagnosed with kidney disease over the past 8 years. Acute renal failure can be reversed if treated early. Discovering chronic kidney disease early on can prolong a cats life. With the proper lifestyle and treatment, cats can live as long as decade with the disease. You have to be very positive and proactive. If you notice, any change in your cats health,  get him to the vet right away.  My cat Atlantis has early stage kidney disease and I always monitor his weight, appetite, hydration and overall health. Is he alone in a corner not wanting to be bothered? Is he not eating? drinking? listless?  These things should be on your everyday checklist.

I also have Atlantis’s blood monitored every six months. I’ve added all of the Astro’s Oil products to his daily regimen. These are natural products that help keep the kidneys functioning for a longer period of time. They are working for Atlantis and have worked for my cat Molly who had the disease for about 7 years. She lived a good quality life for at least five years after diagnosis.

If your cat is diagnosed with kidney disease, don’t give up, you still may have many years to spend with your loving feline friend!

Remember, your pets count!
