Detecting Kidney Disease Early
Cat Chat (10-05-2015) #1048: Does your cat have kidney disease? Don’t you wish there had been a way to find it earlier, before it permanently damaged your kitty’s kidneys? Now there’s a way! The Maine-based company IDEXX has created a new test to find early signs of kidney disease and Dr. Katie Pietsch talks about her family’s own Anchor Animal Hospital in Dartmouth, MA being selected as a field test participant. The new SDMA test will help vets uncover early signs of kidney disease in cats (and dogs), increasing quality of life and saving millions of cats lives in the process.
