Great info. Jade. Unfortunately the vet I work for isn't as up to date on kidney disease in cats as he should be. He never recommends phosphorus binders.
When my 9 1/2 year old cat, Bones, was diagnosed early last dec., I had to find out a lot of info. on my own. A fantastic site for info:
The site above is the best of the best for info. There are also crf yahoo groups to join for support and additional advice.
My cat has been doing great on kidney diets, all natural canned food, phosphorus binders and fluids every other day. I give the fluids at home. I would have to say out of everything, the fluids have had the most positive effect. My cat is back to being playful and happy. I know he isn't cured but the goal here is to get as much quality of life as possible.
