Signs of kidney failure in cats
Kidney disease in cats is the most common of all the known diseases that strike cats. This can happen at any age, but as a cat gets older, the risk becomes greater.
With this new product, you can avoid your cat becoming sick by knowing well in advance he is not well, before he shows any of the following signs.
The kidneys, which are part of the renal system, have the job of filtering impurities out of the blood and regulating water and blood levels. When a cat has kidney failure, it means that the kidneys have lost their ability to do their job. There are two types of kidney diseases, known as acute, and chronic. Most times, both of these are referred to as a renal failure, and both are life-threatening illnesses which require the immediate medical expertise.
One of the first things a vet needs to do is to distinguish what kind of renal failure the cat is suffering from, as this dictates what kind of treatment would need to be administered. Mainly, the disease is termed acute if this has developed suddenly, and chronic, if it’s over the long term. Acute renal failure can be reversible more commonly than chronic failure.
What causes kidney failure in cats
Many things can cause a cat’s kidneys to stop functioning as they should, and the most common cause is through the ingestion of poisons. What is poisonous to a cat varies greatly, and this includes certain human medicines, cleaning fluids, certain plants – like lilies, and pesticides.
Cats in the wild are more at risk to ingest these items than a family pet.
Once a kitty has chronic kidney failure, unfortunately, there is no cure for this. If dialysis or a transplant is not possible, then its future won’t be that promising. This failure occurs when parts of the kidney gradually die off, with the result that these organs are rendered almost useless. It’s not clear what causes this type of disease, but experts in the field believe that inadequate nutrition is a leading factor.
Cat kidney failure symptoms
Listed below are the common symptoms of a kitty with chronic renal disease:
- Loss of weight
- Loss of appetite
- Constant urination and thirst
- Lack of activity
As opposed to chronic renal failure, acute renal failure happens suddenly. This can be due to poisoning, infection, or triggered by a trauma. There is no age factor involved here, and the failure is so rapid, if immediate medical attention isn’t possible, the kitty might suffer, with death to follow. If treated early enough, acute renal failure may be reversible.
Listed below are the common symptoms of a kitty with acute renal disease:
- Loss of appetite
- Lack of coordination and disorientation
- Difficulty during urination
In either case of these diseases, both the cat and its owners go through an extremely difficult and trying experience. When you suspect your kitty is suffering from either one of these failures, it’s important to disclose as much information as you can to your vet. The more symptoms you tell your vet what your cat is displaying, the more this will help in distinguishing which type of failure your kitty is suffering from.
If the renal failure is caught at its very early stages, immediate treatment will most certainly help. Many owners, even though they love their kitties to bits, don’t really know if their felines are sick until they display the symptoms listed above. Sadly enough, by which time, their beloved pets could have gone beyond a point of no return, or the return trip back to health would be a long and difficult one for all concerned.
What if I was to tell you that Daniel Rotman had a kitty which passed away before its time, and he went to the ends of the Earth to develop a product that would warn cat owners of an illness with their cats, even before the symptoms above are evident?
An ingenious and innovate product is now available
That product, which can only be described as ingenious and innovative, saw the light of day to the general public in 2015.
It was given the name of PrettyLitter.
This product can only be described as nothing short of a miracle, and it comes packed with so many advantages. The first and foremost is that it can save your kitty’s life. It also avoids your heart breaking, not to mention other negative side effects, including those dreaded financial burdens.
In the past, for those many cat owners who have lost their beloved kitties before their time, they would have probably been able to save them had this product been available to them back then. If nothing could be done for those poor creatures, at least cats now stand a far better chance of being cured of this awful disease before it erupts into a full-blown disaster.
PrettyLitter is what its name implies, just litter, but probably the best cat litter available in this day and age.
This litter, which comes in a 4lb bag, is placed in your cat’s litter tray to be used like any other litter. It might take a few sessions before your cat gets comfortable enough to start using it, but when kitty comes to do its business in it, the magic starts to work.
The white granules which make up this marvelous litter will change color, depending on the pH level of the cat’s wee.
Should the wee be normal, the wet patch will turn yellowish. This signifies that there isn’t anything to worry about regarding your kitty’s health.
On the other hand, should this turn to Blue, Green or Red, it’s time to start doing something about it, like making an appointment with your vet, and taking kitty over as soon as you possibly can.
PrettyLitter can literally be a lifesaver, and as it’s rightly said, “Prevention is better than cure”, especially in the case of cats who are famous for hiding their feelings. With cats, you will only know they are not well when they start to display strange symptoms, but by then, whatever they have will be already advanced.
That sort of thing can now be a thing of the past, as this product can reveal your cat’s darkest secrets well before kitty knows them itself…all thanks to this ingenious life-saving product, PrettyLitter!
