Dr. Rosie DVM

Canine Kidney Disease

The mission of Dr. Rosie DVM is to enhance the capabilities of pet owners and veterinary practitioners in diagnosing, understanding, and treating renal disease in cats and dogs.

One of our main goals is to educate individuals on IRIS recognized guidelines for diagnosing and treating renal disease in small animals. IRIS is the International Renal Interest Society.

Kidney disease can be sudden onset (Acute Kidney Injury or AKI) or it can be chronic (Chronic Kidney Disease or CKD). Additionally, we explain guidelines for managing CKD cases and Treatment Recommendations.

Furthermore, IRIS have recently added guidelines for Grading Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), and the results of the IRIS Canine Proteinuria Consensus Project are now available online. Both the AKI Grading system and the CKD Staging and Treatment guidelines are continually evolving works that will be revised and updated as new information becomes available.

These guidelines undergo regular review and updates by the IRIS Board, and the most recent versions can be found on our Dr. Rosie DVM website.
