Chronic Kidney Disease in Canine
Chronic kidney disease doesn’t happen overnight; seek another diagnosis.
Chronic renal failure doesn’t happen overnight. If your dog’s kidneys fail suddenly, without previous symptoms, look past a diagnosis of CRF for the real cause. The most common cause of acute renal failure is exposure to a toxin, such as antifreeze, rat poison, certain antibiotics, heavy metals, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or ingesting large amounts of grapes or raisins.
