Renal failure in dogs

kidney failure is very common in dogs. Most dogs over the age of ten suffer from it. Acute renal failure is caused by shock, by some toxins, or by leptospirosis, for example.

The dog vomits, does not eat and has a lot of urine. The prognosis is usually reserved. Acute renal failure is characterized by progressive destruction of nephrons, functional units of the kidney. The kidneys lose their ability to filter and concentrate urea

The treatment is primarily based on the establishment of a diet . No treatment exists. The solution would be to graft the kidney of a donor into a dog.
