Similar Treatments for Treating Kidney Injuries in Humans, Animals

Karol Mathews, DVM, DVSc, DACVECC, professor emeritus of clinical studies at Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph, says humans and animals can receive similar treatments for kidney injuries.

Karol Mathews, DVM, DVSc, DACVECC, professor emeritus of clinical studies at Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph, says humans and animals can receive similar treatments for kidney injuries. One example of this is continuous renal-replacement therapy, which is used in humans and has been adapted for animal patients.

Peritoneal dialysis is another example, Dr. Mathews points out, that was originally used as a treatment for humans, but has now been adapted for animals, especially when no specialty treatment hospitals—where continuous renal-replacement therapy or hemodialysis may be an option—are in close proximity.
