Focusing attention on patients with progressive chronic kidney disease in relatively early stages is extremely important because canine and feline physicians have the greatest potential to slow the progression of kidney disease therefore minimizing morbidity and improving the quality of life for patient and the care taker.

Legacy Veterinary Clinic has special focus on the appropriate use of laboratory testing and interpretation to detect and monitor animals with progressive chronic kidney disease, as well as on the proper application of therapeutic interventions.
