    Chronic renal failure can go by many names. All of which mean the same thing but none sound less frightening. Simply put the kidneys ability to remove waste and concentrate urine are steadily decreasing. There are many things we can do to help slow the progression, such as diet changes, supplements, and fluid therapy. This video has a step-by-step instructional to giving your cat fluids. Even after you cat is diagnosed with chronic kidney disease they may still lead a long and happy life.
