Don’t Wait to See Your Vet
As is the case with most serious canine diseases, the sooner dogs receive appropriate treatment for renal disease the better their prognosis. Some cases of acute renal disease can be cured, and these lucky dogs will go on to live happy, healthy, and, hopefully, long lives.
Chronic renal disease is not curable, but some cases can be managed in such a way that dogs enjoy an excellent quality of life for an extended period of time.
