  •  So sorry about Shadow (15+ / 0-)

    I lost my cat last Friday. Not to kidney problems but to pancreatitis. But we had spent a year getting sub-Q once a week to stave off kidney disease. I took her to the vet once a week because it was easier for me. I can't imagine doing it every day. I didn't think mine would let me give her fluids, although she was great with the vet techs.

    One thing that really helped with my cat was acupuncture. The vet stimulated the kidneys with acupuncture treatment and her kidney values stayed about the same for two years. Don't know if you want to try that, or if you even have access to a good small animal acupuncturist. But I can recommend it as a good treatment.
