How is kidney disease in cats treated?

Your veterinarian will evaluate your cat's condition to determine the stage of kidney disease, the best treatment option and if your cat should be hospitalized.

If your cat's condition does not improve or worsens, your veterinarian may recommend a course of treatment called urographic therapy. Urographic therapy is a procedure that involves injecting a chemical (urea) into the urinary tract. Urographic therapy can help cats with kidney disease by increasing urine flow and improving the urine's ability to dissolve waste products.

If you choose to have your cat treated with urographic therapy, your veterinarian will need to perform a complete blood chemical panel, complete blood cell count and urinalysis before, during and after urographic therapy.
