Hi,

I have never heard of a food intolerance (allergies?) mimicking kidney failure. What do you mean by this? Was your kitty dehydrated at all? Did she have a urinalysis done, and, if so, was her urine dilute? Were full-body x-rays done to rule out other possibilities? If x-rays were taken, were her kidneys of normal size and shape?

If the only symptom was weight loss and vomiting, that can be so many things. Did the vet say anything about her having a condition that prevents her from digesting her food properly? Were special tests run to rule out this possibility?

Sorry to have so many questions, but I am a vet tech, and am trying to figure out what is going on with your kitty, and what she has been tested for. Often cats can have normal bloodwork but still be seriously ill. And BTW, kidney problems show up in urine before they do in blood, so normal kidney values don't tell the whole story.

Please answer some of these questions if you can and I will reply.

Regards,
PHKitkat
