So I just received a call from my vet saying my eldest kitty may be in the earliest stages of kidney failure, but they have to do some further tests... so I arranged to have that taken care of... and I was bombarding the vet with questions and she basically said I shouldn't worry until the next round of test results are in and then we can talk about the way to approach the situation. The whole telling someone not to worry is pretty much a joke... so here I am, at work, red eyes and a giant mess... She's 18-19 and has lived with us for 17 years. They've been doing blood work on her regularly at vet appointments, and I just always assumed that it would eventually end up detecting diabetes and that I'd treat her with insulin and she'd live with me forever Anyway, I'm just looking to hear of others experiences with this... treatments, medicines, progression? I know it isn't going to get better, I guess I just want to have a realistic idea of what I'm in for. I don't go in to my vet again until Saturday for more test, but I guess I probably wouldn't find out the results until next week. Do they do dialysis on cats? Lol, the one question i didn't ask the vet!
