With hemodialysis, the UCVMC-SD’s clinicians can treat life-threatening acute kidney failure—as seen with antifreeze poisoning—and manage long-term renal conditions. Kidney dialysis services have been available for dogs and cats since 2002. The service meets a regional need for hemodialysis and intensive renal care demands. Nephrology and urology expertise for less critical conditions is also available. The service also supports a unique fellowship program at the center to expand advanced training in this growing discipline.
