Kidney Failure in Dogs and Cats / Chronic Renal Failure in Dogs and Cats

Herbal nutrition to help address and reduce symptoms of chronic rental failure in dogs and cats. 

In renal challenges, the kidneys need to be supported and rehabilitated as well as support to the liver, cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system.

The endocrine system interacts with many organs and bodily systems, and the adrenal and thyroid glands plays a major role in providing critical trace nutrient support to all glands and tissue, and the adrenals can become stressed and fatigued, also affecting the liver, duodenum, and kidneys.

In the animal body, the kidneys filter and excrete waste, toxins and excess water from the body through the urine. Healthy kidneys help pets conserve water and concentrate toxins into a smaller amount of liquid to be urinated away. The kidneys also help regulate essential minerals such as sodium, phosphorous and potassium, releasing them into the blood to be used by the animal body. Like the liver, the kidneys have a very large reserve capacity, and symptoms of failure are not often seen until approximately 75% of kidney tissue is nonfunctional.

When the kidneys are damaged, they become less able to concentrate urine. Because your pet is losing water in the urine, he or she needs to drink more. As they continue to drink more, they urinate more, creating a self-fulfilling cycle of drinking and urinating, and losing critical trace nutrients to feed and nourish the body for balance. 

Kidney disease, also known as renal disease, frequently affects cats and dogs. The kidneys have a very important function within the body which is to filter the blood and remove waste products. If these organs do not function properly, waste products accumulate in the body causing your pet to become very ill.

There are two forms of kidney disease, acute renal disease and chronic renal disease.

Acute renal disease symptoms occur suddenly and severely and are often a result of toxicity, infections and changes in the body that restrict the blood supply to the kidneys.

Chronic kidney disease, also known as chronic renal disease (CRD) occurs gradually and over time without observable signs of illness. If left untreated, kidney failure can occur and result in serious health complications for your pet.

Common symptoms of chronic  kidney (renal) disease include:

An increase in water consumption

Increase in volume of urination

Lack of urination

Decrease in urination

Voiding urination during the night

Blood in the urine



Loss of appetite

Weight loss


Hunched over posture accompanied with a reluctance to walk

Poor skin and hair condition

Causes of kidney/renal failure include:

Fungal, viral, and bacterial infections





Autoimmune diseases


Congenital diseases

Amyloidosis (a disease caused by the abnormal deposits of certain types of protein in the kidney)

Inherited disorders

Toxic reaction to certain medications

Other suggestions:

Feed your pet high quality commercial food or a well balanced all natural diet that contains the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals
