Kidney diseases in dogs


Dogs are different species but their body function is very similar to human beings. Kidney plays a very important role for removing waste, calcium metabolization, red blood cell formation and controlling blood pressure. If kidney function is impaired then all the functions performed by the kidney is impaired. Here In this article we will discuss kidney disease in dogs and its ayurvedic view.

Kidney Diseases In Dogs


Kidney disease is a term used to describe kidney stones, polycystic kidney disease, nephrotoxicosis (it is a condition when kidney cells damage with any chemical or drug), and nephritis (when infection occurs in the kidneys. Most of the time in early stages it is very difficult to diagnose kidney diseases because very few symptoms are seen. Due to this it leads to kidney failure. So you must be aware of early signs and symptoms to treat them in the acute stage. Most of the dogs’ symptoms show in old age because they spread very slowly.


  • It is an preventable disease
  • Symptoms appear in old age
  • It can be manageable with ayurvedic herbs.

Types of kidney diseases in dogs

There are two types of kidney diseases in dogs

  1. Acute kidney disease
  2. Chronic kidney disease

Sign and symptoms

  • Bloody urine
  • Weight loss
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Decrease in appetite
  • Dental diseases like mouth ulcers and pale gums etc.


Kidney problems in dogs are of two types. Acute kidney disease and chronic kidney disease. Acute kidney diseases occur quickly but chronic kidney disease takes time and occurs very slowly.

Cause of acute kidney failure

It is the early stage of kidney disease. If a dog ingest any chemical or toxin then it leads to kidney problems. Obstruction in the urinary bladder can also lead to obstruction in passing urine. Due to obstruction blood supply and oxygen supply decreases and increases the chances of infection.

Other causes are as follows

  • Snake bite
  • Bacterial infection
  • Dehydration
  • Heat stroke

Cause of chronic kidney failure

This condition occurs in old age dogs and is very difficult to diagnose because it spreads very slowly. The major cause of chronic kidney failure is dental disease. In this bacteria grows on the dog’s teeth and enters the digestive system and enters the kidney. Over time it spreads in the kidney and leads to kidney failure.


  • Physical examination- weight loss, decrease in appetite and ulcers in mouth shows physical symptoms
  • Blood test– in this test high levels of creatinine shows decreased kidney functions.
  • Urinalysis- specific gravity and protein value can be diagnosed with the help of this test. Low level of specific gravity and high value of protein indicates impared kidney functions.


If kidney disease is diagnosed in a dog then treatment is given according to the dog’s condition. In this condition Symptomatic treatment is given.

Ayurvedic view

Ayurveda is very vast; it manages the diseases of humans as well as animals. According to ayurveda Kidney diseases in dogs can correlate with mutravikara upadrava and prameha upadrava. Kidney diseases in dogs mainly occur due to elevation of vata dosha. In ayurveda Vata dosha can be balanced by vasti (enema). Medicated Basti is given to the dogs for balancing vata dosha.

How to Treat Sialadenitis & Sialadenosis Through Ayurveda


The inflammation of salivary glands is known as sialadenitis. Mostly viral and bacterial cause is the reason behind acute form of sialadenitis. Whereas, sialadenosis is a non-inflammatory condition of salivary glands associated with hypertrophy and ductal atrophy. Common inflammation of the parotid gland is more common than that of sub mandibular gland. If the inflammation is not treated it may land into chronic conditions where there is more recurrence rate. In chronic conditions there is usually obstruction due to strictures. This obstructed gland leads to reduced salivary secretion and results in swelling. The exact prevalence of salivary gland inflammation is not known but sub mandibular involvement occurs in 10% of the population. There is no age or gender prediction as it occurs equally in both males and females but it is common in older ones above 50 years of age. History and clinical examination plays an important role in diagnosis of sialadenitis. In this article we will know about clinical features, causes, treatment of sialadenitis and sialadenosis and its management according to Ayurvedic classical texts.


Sialadenitis is a medical condition when the salivary gland’s parenchyma get inflamed and swollen. The function of the salivary gland is to secrete salivary secretions which helps in digestion of food. It can be confused with sialodochitis inflammation of the ductal system of salivary glands. Sailadenitis usually involves a parotid gland which shows recurrent bacterial infection. During acute exacerbation, the parotid is enlarged, tender and pus can be expressed from its duct. There is a rapid onset of pain and swelling in particular glands. Sialadenosis is non neoplastic swelling of salivary glands, there is no inflammation. The swelling is non tender, bilateral and symmetric. Mostly it is associated with systemic disorders. Salivary gland plays a very important role in keeping our oral cavity healthy and protecting from any viral or bacterial infections. These both diseases  (sialadenitis and sialadenosis) are common causes for submandibular gland infection.

Sialadenitis and Sialadenosis


Salivary glands are exocrine glands present in the oral cavity, their function is to secrete saliva which helps in swallowing and digestion of food.

Basically there are three types of salivary glands

  1. Parotid glands ( largest, maximum secretion)
  2. Sub mandibular glands
  3. Sublingual glands

Salivary glands consist of serous cells, myoepithelial cells and mucus cells. The function of salivary glands are as follows-

  • Swallowing and mastication
  • Electrolytes present protects enamel
  • Enzymes help in digestion
  • Proteins present protect from mouth infections.
  • Neutralizes acid
  • Antifungal property
  • Contains calcium and phosphorus
  • Protects from tooth decay


The main pathology behind sialadenitis is blockage of salivary glands. There are various causes but some of them are as follows-

Sialadenitis cause are

  • Infectious cause (viral, bacterial, etc.)
  • Obstructive cause ( stricture, foreign body)
  • Inflammatory
  • Drug induced ( intake of poly medicines)
  • Auto immune
  • Granulomatous
  • Others ( smoking, alcohol, tobacco

Sialadenosis causes are-

  • Metabolic disorders
  • Nutritional disorders ( vitamin deficiency)
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Drug induced
  • Auto immune


The signs and symptoms for sialadenitis and sialadenosis are given below

  • Swelling in cheek and neck
  • Tenderness and pain on chewing  ( in sialadenosis  there is no tenderness
  • Dry mouth (excessive)
  • Fever and chills
  • Pus discharge from mouth
  • Painful lump on the face
  • Redness on face
  • Generalized weakness
  • Hardened swelling and tissues
  • Salivary stones

  • Malaise


The risk factors for Sialadenitis are as following-

  • Dehydration
  • Liver disorders
  • Kidney disorders
  • HIV infection
  • Malnutrition
  • Infants during first weeks of life
  • Unhygienic oral cavity
  • Excessive spicy or sweet food
  • Avoid coffee, tea, soda, etc.
  • Immuno suppression


There are various methods of diagnosis of salivary gland inflammation, some of them are as following-

  • According to Ayurveda darshan, prashan and sparshan ( Medical history and clinical examination)
  • Examining face and neck area
  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Culture and sensitivity test
  • Sialendoscopy
  • Dental x rays
  • Biopsy
  • MRI and CT scans


The line of treatment of sialadenitis and sialadenitis are as follows-

  • Antibiotics (to prevents bacterial infection)
  • Hydration
  • Gland massage therapy

  • Hot compress
  • Good oral hygiene
  • Balanced diet, with plenty of fluids


According to classical Ayurveda texts mukh roga (buccal cavity disorders) has explained in detail and counted 65 disorders in number. Acharya did not particularly mention salivary glands, as we know this disease is caused due to obstruction of salivary glands which leads to decreased secretion and causes dry mouth. So in Ayurveda text it can be correlated with “trishna” excessive thirst due to mouth dryness. It is tridosha disorder when there is predominance of vata and pitta dosha, which causes excessive thirst.

  • In Ayurveda kawal and gandush (oil pulling and gargling) is done with medicated oils and decoction. Some medicinal drugs used are rare Acorus calamus, Aconitum heterophyllum, etc.
  • Nimbu swaras  (lemon juice)
  • Ginger (Zingier officinalis) stimulate salivation
