my cat jeppito is 14 yrs old...I took him for a senior base line kind of check up he is not showing any signs of illness,,,, his blood work showed his kidneys are failing...I have changed his food to science diet kd, at this point the vet did not suggest sub q,,but looking at his lab results his cloride reading was too high is that from his drinking water...(in calif they put clorine in the drinking water) should I give him bottled water would lowering any of these other higher than high normal help????
We usually see elevation in chloride with dehydration, administration of chloride-containing compounds and hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis. I would not worry about the drinking water. vetcare
