Customer Question

I have an Australian Cattle dog. Recently we took a urine sample into the Vet and he has high protein in his urine he also was diagnosed with high blood pressure. We changed his diet to a kidney formula. I have been told that he has minor kidney damage my question is, is the kidney damage reversible? He is on an antibiotic Clavaseptin 250 mg 2 X daily blood pressure meds Elavil 10 mg once in the evening, Fortekor 20 mg 1/2 tab once daily.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Jak is 6 years old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jak?
Customer: Jak was a rescue dog and has overcome so many issues. He has had no diarrhea, or vomiting. when he was first assessed we were told that his temp was low
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Jak eat anything unusual?
Customer: The only think we can think of is possible rat or rabbit poop.

Depending on the degree of damage that was sustained, the damage may or may not have some effects that can be reversed. If minor, the chances are better. Often, we consider overall damage to be permanent but we can also see benefits from medications, fluids, diet, etc. to improve kidney function for pets. Over the months that follow when his bloodwork is rechecked, your vet should be able to give you a more updated amount of information on if/how his kidney disease is progressing.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
