Casey the 8-year-old domestic cat experienced a bit of distress when his household welcomed a new puppy. His owner noticed that Casey refused to eat for two days and decided to bring him into the vet. It was then that it was determined Casey was experiencing renal failure, possibly partially due to stress.
Kidneys have many important jobs in your cat’s body, including managing blood pressure, making hormones and red blood cells, and removing waste from the bloodstream. Acute renal failure can develop suddenly due to infection, poisons, heart failure, or physical trauma. Treatment depends on the underlying cause.
This poor kitty was hospitalized for four days, receiving fluids, medication and care to bring his kidneys back up to speed. Casey has gone back home and we hope that he is recovering well and adjusting to life with a new dog in the house!
