3264. A 13-year-old cat vomits for 3 days. She has Stage 4 chronic kidney disease

Sep 6, 2018

The 13-year-old cat had never been sick since young and so, there was no visit to the vet.
She vomited 3 days in a row and so the owner brought her to consult me.
Blood test provides evidence of Stage 4 chronic kidney disease with very high creatinine levels above 5 mg/dL.

Tongue ulcers on the right and left sides of the tongue is a sign of kidney disease in cats.


X-rays show severely enlarged kidneys.
Day 2. The cat has been given 2 bottles of IV drips.
