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 provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Has she had her urine tested for an infection? Any recent bloodwork? How is Zora's appetite?
Sorry to hear about Zora. With kidney disease the kidneys start to malfunctions. Since they are responsible for concentrating urine, cats in kidney failure end up having very dilute urine therefore having to need to urinate more frequently. This often leads to inappropriate urination which is what you are seeing with Zora. Unfortunately it is often a part of the ageing process in cats. With her age she is not likely to improve much or any treatment provided for her will likely only have a temporary effect. If you feel her quality of life is diminishing especially since she is losing weight very rapidly, then euthanasia is something that is not unreasonable or cruel to think about
