Our expert says:
Diet is one of the best ways of controlling the effects of chronic renal failure as seen in older cats. Certain types of medication (so-called new generation ACE-inhibitors) may make a difference in some patients, especially those with high blood pressure secondary to kidney failure. Cats on this medication also seemn to live a better quality life. The medication is available from your veterinarian, but he may want to run some blood tests before prescribing this medication.
