Abstract:  Chronic kidney disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in aging cats, and assessments of that condition suggest that conservative management can provide substantial benefit for patients. The veterinarian’s armamentarium is augmented each year with effective therapies for treating renal disease that are designed for human patients but can be successfully adapted for use in cats. The help of an experienced compounding pharmacist is invaluable in converting many of those treatments to the doses and dosage forms appropriate for veterinary patients. In this report, we examine effective approaches to the conservative treatment of chronic kidney disease in cats. Formulations useful in relieving the signs and symptoms of that disorder and in improving both adherence and the patient’s quality of life are made available. Includes supplement of 20 formulations provided in digital edition only.
