Two Types of Feline Kidney Disease

Saturday, October 24, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

There are two types of Feline Kidney Disease they are Chronic Kidney Disease abbreviated as CKD and Acute Kidney Injury or AKI.  Acute Kidney Injury usually comes on very fast and the causes may be your cat eating something poisonous such as anti- freeze or certain poisonous plants. Cats diagnosed with Acute Kidney Injury are usually hospitalized and given the proper treatment such as IV fluids and other medications. AKI is difficult to treat but if the cat survives it may regain much or all of his kidney function.

Chronic Kidney Disease can also come on quickly and may require hospitalization and IV Fluids but it usually comes on slowly as your cat ages but in contrast to Acute Kidney Disease, with CKD, it is not possible to regain lost kidney function. The goal must be to slow down the process and retain the functioning process for as long as possible.

Diagnosing feline kidney disease can be very difficult but it’s important that cat owners watch for the first signs of kidney failure that we’ve covered in previous blog postings. The next thing is to find the right Vet who will continually monitor the progression of the disease and offer some medication and treatments which may prolong life. The final step and one that I rely on the most is to introduce Astros Oil into your pets daily treatment routine. Astros Oil are natural products developed by a Doctor in Canada for treatment of his own cat that had Chronic Kidney Disease. I read the story, tried the product on my cat and was amazed at the results. My cat gained weight, ate normally, became more active and lived an extra five years that I strongly believe wouldn’t have happened had I not introduced Astro’s oil.  I’m now using it on my cat Atlantis and once again have noticed a big improvement.

I’ll let you read all about Astro’s Oil from their website. You can also place an order through the website and  will be delighted with the results. The website is Astros Oil .com.

Unfortunately there is no cure for Chronic Kidney Disease but with the proper intervention, you may be able to give your cat more years of a happy, comfortable life.

Remember, your pets count!
