Rowan Sanderson sits down with Dr. Brendan Clarke, Co-Host of Raw Pet Medics and President of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society (RFVS) to discuss kidney disease in cats.
The kidneys are responsible for reducing toxin buildup in the body from whatever is ingested. They also are responsible for fluid balance (to make sure the person or animal is well-hydrated and excreting the right amount of urine), salt balance, and the management of a variety of hormones such as those that reduce blood pressure.
Listen in as Brendan lists the principal causes and signs and symptoms of kidney disease in cats, what to expect at your visit to the vet, how to treat your cat, and ensure its long-term health.
