Did you know, that after cancer, chronic kidney disease is considered to be the number two silent killer of dogs all over the world? It often develops unnoticed and when you finally do start to see clinical signs, it is often too late to treat and may take your dog’s life unexpectedly!
So make sure to watch this video as I’ll be explaining the causes, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment and prevention methods for kidney disease in dogs so that you can better prepare yourself and potentially protect your dog from this horrible affliction.
Now your dog’s prognosis will depend on the severity of the disease and its stages of progression. While chronic renal failure in dogs cannot be reversed or cured, treatment and management aimed at reducing the contributing factors and symptoms can slow its progression and may add a few months to a few years of good quality life to your pet’s lifespan.
The earlier kidney failure is diagnosed and treated, the better the prognosis and the higher the probability that your pet’s life will be extended.
