Has your cat been diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease? You are not alone. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) affects up to 6% of all cats. Many cats with PKD will live long, happy lives despite having cysts in their kidneys. Unfortunately, some cats develop more or larger cysts than other PKD cats, and this can lead to chronic renal disease and kidney failure. It’s best to identify and treat this feline disease as soon as possible.
Genetics-based diets and medicine will revolutionize the way we care for our cats. However, we’re still just getting started. Research on cat DNA lags far behind research for humans, dogs, and even mice. When you join Basepaws, you are joining a community of cat-lovers who are improving the future lives of all cats.
