Kidney infection in cats

If anyone has  a very “delicate” cat (my Chloe, for instance) you know that it is critical to keep their immune system strong.  A weakened immune system can be a contributing factor for a host of illnesses.

A main cause of kidney infections in cats is bacteria. A cat with a strong immune system will  eliminate the bacteria before it has a chance to grow and potentially spread to the bladder, kidneys or urethra.

In animals that are very young, older or have weakened immunity, the bacteria can grow quite quickly and become a serious illness.

Kidney infections can be a secondary disease when a primary disease already exists.

Most common symptoms:  inability to urinate, pain while urinating, loss of appetite, fatigue and blood in the urine.

Justice for Puppy Doe and all animals

The horrifying case of Puppy Doe has triggered a huge response worldwide.  Many people have now committed themselves to working together to help prevent animal abuse.  And to strengthen the current laws against abusers.

There are many things that we can do and one site that is a good place to start to read up on related issues is the Animal Legal Defense Fund http://www.aldf.org

There are several important petitions to support on the site too.

Puppy Doe has become a catalyst for change.  It is now up to us to create that change!
