Understanding Kidney Health and Kidney Disease in Senior Pets

Vet Talks 4 min read

As our beloved furry kiddos age, their bodies undergo various changes, including shifts in kidney function. Understanding how aging affects our pets’ kidneys is crucial for providing them with the best possible care and quality of life. In this article, we’ll delve into the intricacies of kidney health and kidney disease in senior pets, and explore proactive measures to support their well-being.

With proper care, attention, and support, our senior pets can continue to thrive for years to come.

Aging and Kidney Function

Just like humans, pets experience age-related changes in their organs, including the kidneys. As pets grow older, their kidney function may gradually decline. This decline can affect their ability to efficiently filter waste products from the blood and regulate fluid balance in the body.

Signs of Kidney Disease in Senior Pets

It’s essential for pet owners to be aware of the signs of kidney disease in senior pets. Symptoms may include increased thirst and urination, decreased appetite, weight loss, lethargy, and changes in urine output or appearance. If you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to consult your veterinarian promptly for proper evaluation and management.

Managing Kidney Health

While aging-related changes in kidney function are inevitable, there are steps pet owners can take to support their senior pets’ kidney health. A balanced diet tailored to their specific needs, adequate hydration, and regular exercise are all crucial components of maintaining kidney health in aging pets.

In addition to these lifestyle factors, certain supplements can provide targeted support for kidney function in senior pets. NHV offers a range of supplements formulated to promote kidney health and overall well-being in aging companions. The Vitality Kit for Senior Pets with NHV Tripsy is a supplement regimen designed to support optimal kidney function and vitality in older animals.

The Vitality Kit for Kidney Health and Kidney Disease in Senior Pets

Petomega 3 consists of essential fatty acids EPA and DHA that promote healthy skin, eyes, heart, and other vitals. Further, it contains Vitamin E, which is vital for encouraging cell regeneration, and free-radical scavengers protect against cell damage. These features are crucial to pets’ overall well-being, especially in safeguarding aging vitals, including kidneys.

Old Timer helps support various complications associated with senior fur kiddos. It soothes pains and discomforts while improving muscle strength, endurance, and agility. It is rich in antioxidants, and its adaptogenic properties may help strengthen the body’s resistance to stress, which is critical in managing various kidney issues. Further, it helps support the circulatory and immune systems, which play a vital role in kidney health, while detoxifying those organs.

Multi Essentials contains herbs with a broad spectrum of vitamins and mineral properties, including amino acids (alfalfa, oat, parsley) and vitamin-rich herbs (oat, alfalfa, dandelion, kelp, parsley), which are vital for the well-being of your little one coping with kidney diseases associated with aging. Further, it may support absorption and metabolism while strengthening the immune system.

Yucca is a well-known source of steroidal saponins that stimulate the body to produce its natural corticosteroids. You may be aware that corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory agents. Therefore, Yucca may be a natural aid for your senior fur kiddo to help with discomfort and inflammation, which is crucial in managing various kidney disorders in senior pets. It is also rich in free radicals, which can help protect kidneys and other vitals. Further, it may stimulate and restore appetite (which may be highly affected by kidney disorders-associated pain) while improving digestion and circulation.

Tripsy is the NHV’s main supplement, which safeguards your fur kiddo’s kidneys and urinary tract while reducing inflammation and inhibiting infections. Stone Root, Parsley Piert, and Gravel Root are some of the herbs that specifically help kidneys. Further, it may be beneficial in lowering the risk of various crystals while soothing and flushing kidney stones. The herb Wild Hydrangea helps reduce the formation of urinary calculi, while the nutritive herb Marshmallow acts as a diuretic to flush the toxins out of the body.

Special Considerations

Senior pets may face unique challenges related to kidney health, such as managing concurrent health conditions or adjusting to dietary changes. It’s essential for pet owners to work closely with their veterinarians to address these challenges and tailor a comprehensive care plan that meets their pet’s individual needs.

Preventing Kidney Deterioration and Kidney Disease in Senior Pets

While some age-related changes in kidney function are unavoidable, there are preventive measures pet owners can take to support their senior pets’ kidney health. Regular veterinary check-ups, early detection of kidney issues through routine blood and urine tests, and proactive management of underlying health conditions can all help minimize the impact of aging on kidney function.


As our pets age, it’s natural for their bodies to undergo changes, including shifts in kidney function. By understanding the effects of aging on kidney health and implementing proactive measures to support our senior companions, we can help them enjoy a high quality of life well into their golden years. With proper care, attention, and support, our senior pets can continue to thrive and enrich our lives for years to come.
