Protein Deposits in the Body in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

If your cat has a chronic problem and is experiencing kidney failure, your veterinarian will advise admission to the hospital to resolve the dehydration and stabilize the cat. If some underlying cause is diagnosed as responsible for the amyloid deposition, it will be treated accordingly. Patients in kidney failure required extensive medical treatment and management for a long period of time. Your veterinarian will devise a treatment plan for your cat and will prescribe medications according to the severity of the disease and the presence of other diseases or complications.

 

Living and Management

 

This disease is progressive in nature and treatment may be required for a long period of time. Most animals will return to normal activity but may need to be kept on a specific food diet that has been recommended by your veterinarian. Do not give any medications to your cat on your own because most drugs need normal kidney functions in order to be excreted from body. And because it is suspected of having a familial predisposition, do not breed the affected animals because it will pass the trait on to further generations.
