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 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.

Types of kidney diseases in dogs
There are two types of kidney diseases in dogs
- Acute kidney disease
- Chronic kidney disease
Sign and symptoms

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
- 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.
