The Key to Kidney Disease… Early Detection

Dr. Bernadine Cruz  on Pet Life Radio

Pets are living longer than ever…that is the upside to improved veterinary health care and nutrition but with longevity other health issues like chronic kidney disease becomes more prevalent.  Chronic kidney disease is one of the most common causes of illness and death in older pets.  Even if your pet looks to be the picture of health this insidious disease may be affecting it.  By knowing the subtle signs and appropriate screening tests, you may not be able to prevent your pet from becoming a victim but you could help it to experience as good a quality of life for as long as possible.
