Maintaining good renal health is vital for an animal’s general health and well-being especially as they get older.
The kidneys play an important role in an animal’s body. They carry out many important tasks, including helping to balance certain substances in the blood and filter out the body’s waste as urine.
Common signs that your pet could benefit from renal health support include:
Urinating more than normal
Damaged kidneys struggle to manage the levels of water in your pet’s body. This means they will urinate more often and have more water in their urine making it light in colour or almost clear.
Drinking more water
Your pet may drink more to make up for how much water they are losing during urination
Looking generally unwell
As their kidneys are struggling to get rid of toxins from the body, these can build up and make your pet feel very unwell and might cause them to be actually sick.
Loss of appetite
Your pet may be off their food, due to feeling unwell so not eat as much.
You may notice that your pet is losing weight, this could be due to them not eating as much.
Feeling tired and generally unhappy
Your pet may appear more lethargic and seem irritable due to feeling unwell and being uncomfortable.
If your pet is showing any of the above signs, be sure to speak to your vet as they could be caused by other health related issues and your vet is best placed to monitor your pet’s health.
