Kidney disease, also known as renal disease, commonly affects dogs and cats. The kidneys perform vital functions in the animal body, including filtering the blood and removing 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. In acute renal disease, symptoms occur suddenly and are often a result of toxicity, infections and changes in the body that restrict the blood supply to the kidneys. Acute renal disease is sudden and severe.
Chronic renal disease (CRD) occurs gradually, usually over a along period of time, often without any specific signs of illness. If left untreated, kidney failure can occur and result in serious health complications for your pet.
Common symptoms of kidney disease include:
Increased water consumption
Increased urination 
Increased volume of urine
Lack of urination
Decrease in urination
Voiding urination during the night
Blood in the urine
Loss of appetite
