My 11-week-old kitten, September, started vomiting Sunday night. Yesterday, the vet confirmed that she has aggressive, advanced polycystic kidney disease. One of her kidneys is swollen up so much her side is protruding. The x-rays showed that the swollen kidney is so large, it has MOVED her other digestive organs. There are visible large cysts inside the swollen kidney. She is exhibiting signs of advanced renal failure. The vet prescribed some pills that have stopped her vomiting, but she is lethargic, urinating excessively, and drinking excessively. However, she is also active and playful - so much so that the vet recommended that we wait to euthanize if the vomiting stopped. But even so, I know her kidneys are failing.
I need to know: is there any quality of life left for her? I don't have a lot of money, but this kitten is my baby, and I will do anything in my power to give her a life, even if it's short, as long as she can be happy.
Please advise. Her time is short. I need to know whether to make a vet trip tomorrow for prescription food and subcutaneous fluids or for euthanasia.View Thread
