Feline elevated creatinine and BUN

Recently my 8 year old cat had rouine labs done prior to having his teeth cleaned.  The creatinine and BUN was found to be elevated. He has been onEpakitin and after four weeks the Creatinine has gone from 2.38 to 1.97 (1.8 being normal?) and the BUN has increased from 41 to 56.6 ( 29 the normal used by the VET).  What should we being doing that we aren't?

hi Annie, welcome to our forum...just sadly not for happy reasons.
I am so sorry for kitties problems. CRF(chronic renal failure) is so common and can be so hard to treat.
The only help I can give you is to refer you to a couple of websites with more info, this site talks in understandable terms just what kitty is up against and not meant to scare you. sounds like your kitty is still in the 'treatable' range and I am so glad you are seeking further options.
Please stay with us and post as often as you wish, we value your experiences too.

www.felinecrf.com

www.marvistavet.com
you'll have to follow the links for CRF on there.....I think its marvistavet.com/html/body_chronic_renal_failure
however if I'm wrong you'll find the links off the home page.

good luck in your search and for kitties health.
