Kidney Treatment Centers for Pets

The Washington Post reports on the differences between acute and chronic kidney failure, concluding "if your pet ate any of the tainted foods recalled by Menu Foods and is not showing symptoms, that does not necessarily mean your pet is safe."

Newsweek offers an interview with an expert with an interesting perspective on issues about pet food safety and feeding dogs and cats in general.

As noted in an earlier post, the UC Veterinary Medical Center-San Diego's unit for treating acute and chronic kidney failure is one of only two veterinary clinics in California and five in the nation equipped to provide dialysis for cats and dogs.

Another source of advanced veterinary care is the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine feline renal transplantation program. A cat kidney transplant costs $8,000.
