Our 10 year old male neutered cat, Twinee, has recently been diagnosed with CRF. He was hospitalized for four days and dyalized, and we are now administering daily sub-q treatments of Ringers, 100 cc per day. Twinee is only marginally tolerant of this due to having to be restrained for the treatment. We have modified his diet to R/D and he is still drinking huge amounts of water. He also hovers at the water bowl, a classic sympton of CRF. His current BUN is 72, down from 180 upon admission. Is there anything else we can do for him? Sub-q and diet modification do not seem to be enough. Any ideas and advice will be throughly appreciated. Thank you.
This is a chronic and progressive disease. You are doing everything you can, except you may want to try an tagamet 1/4 tab 2 x daily. This will help make your pet feel better. There is no cure for this. Sorry, vetcare
