Kitty is home with us
So this afternoon, we got a call from the clinic and they did a blood test which showed positive signs. Here is the result:
CREA 15.5 mg/L (8.0 - 24.0)
UREA 0.363 g/L (0.336-0.756)
According to the vet, the fact that she was given fluids for 5 days lowered her creatinine and urea levels.
So we left the clinic with her, some antibiotics and her new food which is, Virbac, K(kidney), Kidney Support (Renal insufficiency). Does anyone have any opinion about this food?
She has a history of urinary tract infections and was under a different type of food; the vet suggested that she starts her new food as it is easier to treat a urinary tract infection than kidney failure.
We are also looking to get a small water fountain to encourage her to drink more.
I don't know how long before Kitty shows another sign of kidney failure, but we will do our best to make sure that she lives a long and relatively healthy life.
What else can we do besides changing her food and encouraging her to drink more water?
