Looking for feedback: Kittie threw up right before pooping
(Not panicing here, just want some feedback and insight for further knowledge)
A bit of back ground.
Harmony was Dx-ed HyperT and went thru I-131 back in April, That was successful (YAY!)
She is also early stage 2 CKD (last Creatinine in July was 2.1: sorry dont have referrence range at the moment)
Today she awoke from a nap and threw up stomach acid (something which she did do frequently when she was hyperT. Since the I-131, this was resolved)...She then went to the litter box and had a healthy poop.
I know that advanced CKD can cause excess stomach acid, but she, at least at last blood panel in July, was more early stage.
Can kidney disease advance that quickly? Or could it have been related to needing to poop?
I have been slowly tweaking her food too, in order to try and get her on a lower PHOS canned food. Thus far, she eats a mixture of two varieties at the same time. One has a PHOS of 1.08 the other .68.
She wont eat the straight .68 but when mixed with the 1.08, about half and half, she will for the most part.
I *try* to get the mixture more on the .68, but I do noticed she will be less interested in it and wont eat nearly as much. So the possibly exists that when I try this, she eats less cause she simply doesnt like it nearly as much as when the higher canned food is the major food.
I guess I am just looking for feedback.
How quickly can/does CKD progress on average? I realize that it may be different cat to cat, but was wondering if there is an average?
