Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a disease common in both cats and people. If your veterinarian has determined that kidney damage has been ongoing for more than 3 months, it is considered chronic and will require close monitoring and intervention.
Although we do not currently have a cure for chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats, there are many treatments available to alleviate symptoms associated with the disease. Dietary therapy and medications can promote longer and higher quality of life for cats who suffer from CKD, especially when the disease is caught early.
