Default Saving Cats

ATTENTION CAT LOVERS!!!

Too many of our cats are dying of chronic kidney disease. Especially male Persian cats. We can't cure it but we can help, by identifying the signs, taking care and enabling our cats to live longer and better lives.

Clinics and hospitals – please inform the people and animals that you help. Passing the information via your distribution lists will help so much, as non-clinicians don't have the tools to diagnose.

In general, if your pet displays one or more of the following take him or her to the vet IMMEDIATELY.

(From a poster in an animal clinic)

Clinical signs of infection
Weight loss*
Weakness
Loss of appetite
Fever
Vomiting**
Diarrhea**
Mouth ulcers***
Chronic bacterial infection


* A cat may eat well but lose weight due to the kidney dysfunction. If your animal is eating regularly, the weight loss is gradual and he or she has a thick, fluffy fur – you might not notice at first.
** If a cat goes outdoors, some of the symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, irregular stools could go unnoticed.
*** Halitosis – if a cat has very bad breath, it's often a sign of illness more serious than dental decay.

P.S. - Nutrition is important for cats with kidney disease. My vet recommended Royal Canine cat food.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE AND DISTRIBUTE THE INFORMATION TO AS MANY PEOPLE AND SOURCES AS POSSIBLE.

Thank you so much.

Two more points:

More urination: urination is often more profuse and frequent.
Dehydration: this is also a major symptom. Vets check this by gently gathering the cat by the scruff of the neck. Loose skin: a healthy cat. Tight skin: dehydration.

Default Posters have written about CRF

One wrote that his cat kept drinking from the sink, as he was dehydrated and thirsty. The other wrote that her cat suddenly started playing with the water bowl, never previously done. This CHANGE made her see the vet, in addition to the fact that the cat litter was soaked as never before.

Additional points:

**** Urination: If cats urinate in unusual places, not in the cat litter as usual, it may indicate a lack of bladder control. Urination is often more profuse and frequent. If cats wet themselves – this is a very serious symptom- to the vet IMMEDIATELY!

***** Dehydration: this is also a major symptom. Vets check this by gently gathering the cat by the scruff of the neck. Loose skin: a healthy cat. Tight skin: dehydration.

Some studies suggest a connection between vaccination and CRF, the vaccination may make the condition worse – so take note if you vaccinate your cat.

Too many of our cats are dying of chronic kidney disease. (chronic renal failure: CRF) We can't cure it but we can help, by identifying the signs, taking care and enabling our cats to live longer and better lives. A cat with kidney problems needs to eat special, quality food. Wet food is recommended for these cats.
