Optimising Diagnosis and Treatment of Feline Chronic Kidney Disease
Feline Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common diagnoses in clinical practice and is estimated to affect more than a third of cats over the age of ten years. Making an early diagnosis can be challenging although recent advances have been helpful in this area. Successful long-term treatment depends on a good working relationship with the owner, attention to detail and regular check-ups. Thanks to advances in treatment options, most cats with CKD live a long and excellent quality of life following diagnosis making this a rewarding condition to manage. This article will highlight tips for successful diagnosis and management of CKD.
