Chronic kidney disease due to a progressive loss of kidney function is a condition regularly seen in the veterinary hospital with signs not only being polyuria and polydipsia, but anorexia, mucosal ulcers and dehydration. Understanding the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease allows nursing care to be tailored not only for the condition, but to the individual patient encouraging a holistic approach and quality client care.
