Another important step is to reduce the overall traffic of protein through the body with a slightly reduced protein diet.
You’re going to need to take care here though! Your cat absolutely needs protein in order to remain healthy, active and ready for mischief. It’s therefore advisable to gradually switch to a lower protein diet, making sure that the protein they do get is a high quality lean animal protein.
You may also wish to consider putting your cat on vet-approved omega 3 essential fatty acid supplements. While research on its efficacy with cats is still at an early stage, we do know they help humans with kidney issues.
Provided you follow the dose directions, it can’t hurt!
If you see the symptoms of proteinuria in your cat, the best thing you can do is to talk to your vet.
While medications are part of the solution, getting your cat onto a slightly reduced but high quality protein diet as early as possible is going to improve their quality of life and greatly improve their chances of avoiding chronic kidney disease.
