Default How much does animal dialysis cost?

Our cat has had kidney trouble. The vet said its genetic. That was almost a year ago. While he was ok for most of this time (save for an occasional emergency room visit) he never had much trouble. Well over the past week or so the cat has been having trouble jumping and climbing up the stairs. He couldnt even jump up onto the couch. Hes been eating less and less as well.

My mom insists on getting dialysis for him. However the closest clinic for that is some 80 miles away. And doesnt dialysis have to happen a few times a week? at a cost of which I cant even imagine. Hence the question.

Does anyone know how much that would cost for a cat?

It would be cheaper to just get a new cat.

I cut up animals for cheap. $20 an hour. And I freeze them and package them too. And best of all, I use natural perservatives (human urine).

And exactly what relevance does that have in regards to this thread?

The question at hand is positioned in regard to the welfare and very existance of the animal's life.

The OP is probably coming from the perspective of preservation; that the cat's life is of value and hence the time money and effort may be worth investing. This is one resolution.

The poster was simply posting a second solution; that is the relavance.

^^Don't try to turn the thread into a flamefest please, regardless of how eloquent the attempt might have been.

To put it short, the OP has a problem, asked a legit question, and deserves to get a useful answer, it's as simple as that.
Especially when the wellbeing of a beloved pet is at risk, I don't mind a bit of jackassery once in a while, as long as it's kept out of threads like this.

If you think I'm being unreasonable, feel free to drop me a PM.

Its cruel to put animals through medical procedures such as this. Humans can understand the necessity of something like this, but animals can't. Can you lock the car in a garage with a running car or feed it an OD of panadol + sleeping tablets or something.
