Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have providedregarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Do you know how high the kidney values were? Was he showing any other signs like vomiting or diarrhea?
Sorry I was off line when you responded. It is possible that your cat was exposed to something toxic that caused the kidney failure. But it is unlikely it was due to the D-con. Rat poison usually causes bleeding disorders or neurological issues. It is rarely causes issue with the kidneys. Another toxin that cats can get into is antifreeze which tends to cause a major issue with the kidneys. Is it possible that he could of gotten into antifreeze?
Yes the bloodwork results may help with this mystery for sure. But there are also plants that cats can get into as well that can cause problems as well that you may want to look into.
You are welcome. Hopefully you will find something out
