Default kidney/renal failure

Taken from another thread

Today I thought I'd talk to you about a common medical problem that occurs in both dogs and cats. Some pet owners are quite familiar with this disease - but many are surprised by the symptoms of kidney failure (also known as renal failure).

In fact, kidney failure is quite common in senior pets - especially cats. It can also occur in younger pets as well. This is a frustrating disease because there is no ideal "cure". The disease can be managed but is often progressive. In humans, a kidney transplant or dialysis are common treatments - and although these treatments can also be done in pets, they are complicated, costly and therefore uncommonly performed.

Symptoms will vary depending on the underlying problem but commonly include:
• Slowing down
• Lack of appetite
• Many pets will lose weight
• Increased thirst or water consumption
• Increased urinations (more volume)
• Urine is more dilute (often will be lighter in color which may be hard to recognize if your dog urinates in the grass
• Vomiting
Kucing saya Ben, mengalami simtom2 seperti di atas untuk beberapa hari. The problem was, i didn't even notice that he had those symptoms in the beginning because i have 12 cats. So during feeding time, all the cats are excited to eat, including Ben. i failed to see that ben didn't really eat. He was there as excited as the others, so i thought everything was ok.

Sampailah satu hari i notice yg Ben nampak sedikit kurus dari biasa. Mulut dia juga banyak keluar saliva dan berbau busuk. Then i started to monitor whether he eats or not. Memang dia hanya makan sedikit sahaja. I thought he had a mouth infection or something. He was already a little dehydrated by that time.

I brought Ben to a vet in jb, and the dr did a blood test, and to my suprise, the creatine level is off the chart indicating kidney problem. So , ben was admitted to the clinic for 3 days with IV 24/7 to lower down the creatine level.

Today i went to the clinic to bring him home. The doctor told me that the reading is still off the chart(>10) and there's not much hope.
The dr gave me antibiotic for ben which i dun think it'll help that much anyway.

Ada sesiapa yg pernah berpengalaman dengan kucing yg ada kidney failure?? Ada harapan ke penyakit ni?? God, i really dunno what to do now.
