Kidney failure

Posted 3 weeks ago2020-09-05 19:35:49 UTC
My cat was hospitalized for a reduced appetite, weight loss, and possible abdominal mass. Blood results showed 800 μmol/l of creatinine, normal levels being 140 μmol/l, indicating kidney failure. The abdominal ultrasound showed abnormal kidneys, possibly due to cancerous causes (lymphoma). She has eaten a small amount this morning but her blood results have only mildly improved. Considering euthanasia due to her poor quality of life.

Oh man, I'm sorry to hear that. How old is she, may I ask?

Around 10. It is apparently normal for this kind of disease to affect 10 year olds, and no one knows what causes it. My money's on the cat food, turns out the cheaper stuff I was feeding them was mostly leftovers with nutritional additives. I would probably get cancer after 10 years of eating this too.

Sorry to hear about your cat. I lost 2 of my cats to leukosis, and it was horrible to know that I couldn't help them at that point.
