Your pet’s kidneys plan an important part in filtering and removing waste from the body. Kidney disease occurs when something causes these functions to be compromised and it typically falls into two categories:
- Acute kidney injury – an abrupt decline in kidney function.
- Chronic kidney disease (CKD) – a slow decline in kidney function over time. CKD can happen for a variety of reasons: kidney stones, infections (including Lyme disease in dogs), toxins, injuries, genetic abnormalities, cancer, and others. If kidney disease is suspected, your veterinarian will work with you to determine the underlying cause of the disease and create the best treatment or management plan for your pet.
