This article discusses kidney disease in critically ill small animal patients. Critically ill patients may present to the clinician with kidney disease as the primary complaint, or kidney damage or dysfunction may arise as a complication or consequence of other illness. In the latter scenario, the clinician must carefully monitor parameters that assess renal function and be prepared to intervene to prevent irreversible injury.
