This week’s case is a 9-year-old male neutered Domestic Shorthair cat with chronic renal failure. What are your findings?
FindingsThe liver and gastrointestinal tract appear normal. The left kidney is small with an irregular border and central calculi in the pelvis. The right kidney is enlarged and has a flattened cranial pole on the ventrodorsal projection. Calculi are present in the renal pelvis.
- Bilateral chronic renal change
- Right renal enlargement may be due to compensatory hypertrophy or hydronephrosis (ureteral obstruction).
