Dogs and cats with uremia may display abnormalities of essentially all parts of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Abnormalities may be mild or severe. They may result from inflammation, edema, erosions, ulceration, and/or necrosis. Clinical signs of GI complications or uremia may include anorexia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and GI bleeding. This article discusses the GI manifestations of uremia according to anatomic sites and also describes the management of common clinical problems as they relate to uremic GI abnormalities.
