Cat in kidney failure

I have a 14 year old maine coon, who was diagnosed with CRF Bun 85, creatinine 4.5, phos 5.8, calcium 10.4 was anemic.  He had an urine anlysis which showed urine was dilute.  He was kon IV for 3 days, and now on SQ plus Inj Vit B12 daily.  He takes mirizapine, daripoetin, grizzly salmon oil, probiotic petinic and pepcid.  Eating is ok, but not enough, so I syringe feed him some.  His attitude is good. I sm also making food for cats with CRF. Could he benefit from acupuncture and is there anything else I can give him or take away?  Is there any other suggestion that can help keep his number down.

Thanks
Nancy

Hi Nancy,

Definitely look forward to you posting a follow up on this to see what happened.  We had a kitten under 6 months that recently suffered from kidney failure due to FIP which was fatal.  I am seeing kidney failure occur more frequently in cats these days, we are doing grain free food, but also I have been reading that we should be including more wet food as well.
