A Treatment Option You May Not Know About

Hemodialysis (or dialysis) for pets was introduced in the veterinary world in the early 2000s. It works the same way as it does in people: A patient’s plasma is filtered through a machine to remove toxins and other waste buildup from the patient’s blood stream and then cycled back to the patient.

Conditions we can treat with dialysis include:

  • Heart disease
  • Heat stroke
  • Immune system conditions
  • Kidney disease or injury
  • Poisoning
