Chronic renal insufficiency

This section discusses the ins and outs of chronic renal insufficiency, also called chronic renal failure, renal disease, feline kidney disease, feline renal disease, and a host of other word combinations.  I've divided this enormous subject into what I hope are bite-sized chunks.

The Overview briefly explains what the kidneys do, and how it goes terribly wrong in feline chronic renal insufficiency.

Causes and Risk Factors is pretty self-explanatory.

Prevention discusses some of the things we think might help to prevent this disease, or delay its onset.

Diagnosis explains some of the testing we do to determine whether a cat really has renal insufficiency, and to what degree.

Diet, water and supplements gives recommendations on feeding and watering the cat with renal disease.

Treatment discusses the management of this chronic disease.
