Cat with Kidney Failure now showing rear leg disfunction
My 14 year old indoor cat had kidney failure last November. Spent 1 week in hospital and is currently still with us. He is on Azodyl and Epakitin. I've noticed that his rear leg functions are diminishing and he "slides" is back legs on the floor as he is unable to walk normally. Is this a side effect of either of these two medicines?
