Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Specific instruction for home therapy is determined by kidney damage. Follow-up can be critical and may include:

  • Administer any veterinary prescribed medications as directed, and be certain to contact your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Follow-up with your veterinarian for examinations, laboratory work and urinalysis. Blood and urine analysis should be repeated within five to seven days after discharge.

  • Some owners can administer subcutaneous fluid to their pets at home. Your veterinarian can provide instructions when indicated.

  • Feed the diet recommended by your veterinarian. Provide your pet free access to fresh clean water at all times.
