Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
Kidney disease is a general term to describe several conditions that can affect the kidneys or damage kidney cells. Some types of kidney disease are reversible but chronic kidney disease is a progressive disease that is irreversible. However, pets can sometimes have a good quality of life for many years after being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.
