Fighting Canine Kidney Disease

(CFR) Chronic renal (kidney) failure is a common problem in all dog breeds. Digestion of foods produces waste products, which get carried by the blood into the kidneys. When they reach the kidneys they are filtered and then excreted in the form of urine.

What happens when the kidneys fail?

When they do fail, the kidneys aren't able to remove the waste products, which causes a toxin build up in the blood producing clinical signs of kidney disease.

I found some good (and hopefully helpful) information for anyone who's Labrador Retriever is dealing with kidney disease.
