Tufts seeks input from veterinarians for chronic kidney disease study


Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine wants information on the feeding habits of cats with chronic disease.

The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, Mass., is conducting a short survey about feeding habits of cats with chronic kidney disease and needs veterinarians to contribute data.

"Chronic kidney disease is one of the most common diseases affecting cats," says Jessie Markovich, DVM, DACVIM, a resident in Tufts University's nutrition department. "Diet is one of the main components of treatment for this disease but additional information is needed to optimize our nutritional recommendations."

She says the data collected will be used to advance knowledge about optimal nutrition for cats with this common disease. Veterinarians with patients suffering from chronic kidney disease can log on to dvm360.com/tuftsstudy to take the survey.
