What Is Feline Kidney Disease?
Cat kidney disease is a common health problem in older cats. This condition is difficult to diagnose because there are not many outward signs. Age, injury, or disease can damage kidney tissue and lead to kidney failure.
In order to detect this condition in early stages, ask yourself a few questions. Is your cat drinking more water than usual? Is she sad or depressed? Did she suddenly quit eating?
All of these are signs of a possible kidney problem. Other common symptoms of feline renal disease include presence of blood in the urine, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite.
