Abstract:
Intermittent Hemodialysis (IHD) is a modality of renal replacement that has been used in the last decades among veterinarians in cases of drug or toxin ingestion, acute or acute-on-chronic kidney injury, and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of intermittent hemodialysis instituted in a dog with CKD in order to provide a better quality of life. A nine years old Labrador retriever dog with chronic kidney disease at stage III received IHD treatments. Blood samples were collected before and after each session of IHD treatment. Intermittent hemodialysis remarkably decreased serum urea, creatinine, and phosphorus levels. Significant improvement was noticed in the patient with regards to clinical signs and symptoms, haemato-biochemical parameters and quality of life.
