AN299 Kidney Disease - renal amyloidosis or hepatic amyloidosis (liver) - in all species
Kidney amyloidosis is a rare disorder of protein metabolism in which abnormal deposits of the protein called amyloid is deposited in the kidneys. The cause of kidney amyloidosis remains poorly understood. It is a hereditary condition in certain breeds of cat. It also may occur in other breeds or mixed breeds as a reaction to chronic infections and inflammatory conditions. The term renal and kidney mean the same thing and may be used interchangeably.
Most cats with kidney amyloidosis are old at the time of diagnosis (7 years in cats). The disease can occur at any age or breed. It is a hereditary disorder in Abyssinian cats. There is a definite female predilection in Abyssinian cats (females are 1.6 times as likely to be affected compared to males). Amyloid deposits in the kidney lead to excessive protein loss in the urine and eventually chronic kidney failure. Amyloid may also be deposited in other organs like the liver, spleen, and pancreas, causing them to malfunction as well.
Symptoms to watch out for in a cat:
Labored breathing due to thromboembolism (blood clots in the lungs)
Ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen)
Edema (swelling of the limbs and/or face)
It is an inherited trait for some breeds (Chinese Shar Pei) but has also been found in Beagles, Collies, and Walker Hounds.
While these breeds have an increased risk, German Shepherds and mixed-breed dogs seem to have a decreased risk. This disease tends to be diagnosed in older dogs, the age of 9 years old being the average age except in Shar-Peis whose average age at death is 4 years old, and it can occur at younger ages in any breed. It is felt that chronic infections and inflammatory conditions could be a factor in the development of renal amyloidosis in dogs.
Symptoms to watch out for of Renal (Kidney) Amyloidosis in Dog
Loss of appetite
Breathing that may be labored
Swelling of limbs and face
History of joint swelling and fever, especially in your Shar-Pei
About the Kidneys in general.
The kidneys main function is to remove waste products from our blood through urine.
When we understand this, we have a better knowledge of how we can support our pets with Renal failure - acute or chronic kidney disease. Basically, it means the kidneys can no longer function properly. The kidneys are powerful chemical factories that perform the following functions: remove waste products from the body remove drugs from the body balance the body's fluids release hormones that regulate blood pressure produce an active form of vitamin D that promotes strong, healthy bones control the production of red blood cells.

"Kidney Health & Support in this up today research and alternative safe natural treatments for your pet. Provided with more information about the kidneys and the vital role they play in keeping your body functioning, and if we add toxins, chemicals drugs or foods, this puts, even more stress on an only 20% or less functioning kidney.

Using large numbers of Veterinary drugs and products can be very harmful to the kidneys. Please conscious of decision making on what you put in your cat or dogs system.
Dr. Becker DVM says..... certain other medications, toxins, pesticides (worming, flea treatments drop or sprays or tablets, washes) can also cause kidney damage. Today's pets are under constant assault from dangerous toxins in the environment. They are also exposed to the second category of toxins in the chemicals used to repel fleas, ticks, and other bugs
And then there are veterinary medications like vaccines, dewormers, and other drugs. Side effects from unaddressed toxins are wide-ranging and include skin conditions, organ failure (liver and kidneys), endocrine disease, cancer, behavior problems, and autoimmune disease. How often your pet needs a detoxifying protocol depends on factors such as toxin load, age, overall health status, and vitality.

Causes of Chronic Kidney Disease
There are numerous causes of chronic kidney disease. Some can be prevented or effectively treated if detected early enough.
~ Degenerative kidney disease associated with aging
~ Congenital malformations of the kidneys (eg. Polycystic kidneys in Persian cats)
~ Bacterial infections (can ascend from the bladder or be filtered from the blood)
~ Kidney tumors (most commonly lymphosarcoma which is an infiltrative tumor of white blood cells)
~ High blood pressure
~ Viral infections (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus or Feline Infectious Peritonitis)
~ Deposition of "amyloids" in the kidneys.
For all species, size, and ages.
(a) “HOMEOPATHICS” are sold in either a clear liquid or tiny white pills or granules – both have no odour or taste) Easy “application dosing” for all species:
Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
NOTE: the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide faster action.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c) “NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) NB. Always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1/4 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or Vital Greens (highly nutritional) with 10 drops of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) (after a little hot water added to dissolve alcohol) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it.
