2903. A 7-year-old female cat has kidney stones in 2 kidneys. Why?

Jan 2, 2016

The gentleman wanted to vaccinate this 7-year-old female spayed cat.
"She had no appetite for some time," he said.
"We must find out what's wrong as vaccination of sick cats is not recommended."

I palpated the anterior abdomen behind the rib cage.The cat reacted and arched her back.
"Most likely kidney disease," I said. "Blood tests and X-rays needed. A urine test is needed but she has no urine now."

What is the solution?

Dialysis and K/d diet first 2 weeks. Need to review whether the kidneys can still function.
