General information on Uremic Poisoning
Uremic Poisoning (kidney failure) occurs when the kidneys are unable to remove waste products from the blood. Uremic Poisoning can happen as a result of trauma to the abdomen, a blockage to the lower urinary tract, poisoning, shock, a blood clot that blocks an artery, infectious diseases, toxins and aging.
Symptoms of Uremic Poisoning
Symptoms of Uremic Poisoning in cats may include frequent and increasing urination, accidental urination outside the litter box, increased thirst, appetite loss, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, ulcers on the tongue and gums, and a brownish color on the surface of the tongue.
Treatments for Uremic Poisoning
Your vet may hospitalize the cat to do special tests or perform exploratory to make an accurate diagnosis. He may also place the cat on Vitamin B supplements and a special diet. To correct the acid/base imbalance, sodium bicarbonate tablets may be given. If the serum phosphate level is high, a phosphorous binder may be indicated to lower the level.
