Pyelonephritis is an inflammatory disease of the renal pelvis that occurs most often as a consequence of a bacterial infection, or as a result of mechanical irritation in urolithiasis. In cats, pyelonephritis is less common than in dogs. There are acute and chronic course of the disease.

Symptoms: the general condition is depressed, with acute illness the temperature of the body is sharply increased, urination is frequent and painful, the cat experiences pain in the lumbar region.

The veterinarian is diagnosed on the basis of anamnesis, clinical examination results, urine and blood tests.

Treatment: antispasmodics, antibiotic therapy (albipen LA, enrofloxacin - gentamicin is contraindicated, which has nephrotoxic effects in cats and often contributes to deafness), sulfa-120, sulfonamides (urosulfan), diuretic, gamavit. With purulent form - corticosteroids.

Homeopathic treatment. Treatment of pyelonephritis requires particularly careful selection of funds. The most commonly used cantharis compositum and berberis-homaccord. In the most classic version, both drugs are administered simultaneously in the form of injections for a long time (1.5-2 months).

However, the choice of drugs for acute forms of inflammation, in which a lot depends on the effectiveness of the treatment, is of greater importance.
In this case, a positive result should be obtained as soon as possible.

Primary choice drugs depend on the symptoms:

traumel - urine with blood, frequent urge to urinate;

Echinacea Compositum - high fever, drowsiness;

cantharis compositum - frequent and painful urination;

belladonna-homaccord - high fever, depression, rejection of water;

berberis-homaccord - suspected urolithiasis, with pale mucous membranes and diarrhea;

Engystol - is added to any of the listed drugs to enhance the effect or is introduced into the course of therapy after the removal of acute symptoms.

Phytotherapy. Recommended fito-collections - bearberry leaf, horsetail grass, dandelion root, lingonberry leaf. You can use phytoelitis "Healthy Kidneys".

Collection: wild strawberry (leaves) 10 g, nettle (leaves) 20 g, hanging birch (leaves) 20 g, flaxseed 50 g. Give the infusion in the form of heat 2-3 times a day.

  1. Pyelonephritis
    DEFINITION Pyelonephritis is an inflammation of predominantly interstitial tissue of the kidney and renal pelvis, which manifests itself as a picture of an infectious disease in young children. In recent years, pyelonephritis belongs to the infectious (bacterial) variant of tubulointerstitial nephritis, which is reflected in the cipher for ICD-10 diseases of the urinary system. CODE software ICD-N10. Acute tubulo-interstitial
  2. Pyelonephritis
    Pyelonephritis is an infectious disease in which the pelvis, calyx, kidney substance is involved in the process, mainly affecting the interstitium. • The most common kidney disease, • The most common pathogen is E. coli. • The infection enters the kidneys either by hematogenous or ascending - from the urethra, bladder, ureters (ascending urogenic pyelonephritis). •
  3. Pyelonephritis pregnant
    Pyelonephritis is a nonspecific infectious-inflammatory process, accompanied by damage to the interstitial tissue of the kidneys, the tubule apparatus and the walls of the pyelocaliceal system. In pregnant women, the process often develops in the right kidney. Pyelonephritis develops in 6-7% of pregnant women, often in the second half of pregnancy. Pregnant women with pyelonephritis are at high risk.
  4. Pyelonephritis
    Among the diseases of the urinary system most often microbial inflammatory lesions of the kidneys and urinary tract. This group of diseases takes the first place in the structure of nephropathy in children. Inflammatory diseases of the urinary system in recent years account for 77-89% of all cases of hospitalization of children in nephrological hospitals. The prevalence of microbial inflammatory diseases
  5. Pyelonephritis
    EASY AND MEDIUM PEA NEPHRITIS Selection of antimicrobial agents The drugs of choice: oral fluoroquinolones (levofloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin, pefloxacin, ciprofloxacin), amoxicillin / clavulanate. Alternative drugs: oral cephalosporins II-III generation (cefuroxime axetil, cefaclor, cefixime, ceftibuten), co-trimoxazole. Duration of therapy: 10-14
  6. Pyelonephritis
    - non-specific inflammatory process, which involves not only the renal pelvis and calyx, but mainly the renal parenchyma, with a predominant lesion of its interstitial tissue. Classification (according to E. M. Tareev, 1972) I. In the course of the disease: 1) acute (serous or purulent); 2) chronic; 3) recurrent. Ii. On the ways of infection: 1) hematogenous
  7. Acute pyelonephritis
    Pyelonephritis is a nonspecific infectious disease affecting the renal parenchyma, mainly with damage to the interstitial tissue. Causes: infection, violation of urodynamics, impaired immunity. Most often, pyelonephritis is caused by Escherichia coli, Proteus, Enterococcus, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus .. The infection enters the kidney, the pelvis, then into its cups by hematogenous or lymphogenous
  8. Acute pyelonephritis
    Pyelonephritis is a nonspecific infectious-inflammatory disease of the kidneys with a simultaneous or sequential lesion of the renal pelvic system and tubulointerstitial tissue. Pathophysiology Acute pyelonephritis (OP) is an infection that can cause abscess formation, organ loss, development of renal failure, urosepsis and septic shock with
  9. Chronic pyelonephritis
    Chronic pyelonephritis is a consequence of uncured acute pyelonephritis and can occur without acute events from the onset of the disease. Clinical manifestations. Unilateral chronic pyelonephritis is manifested by dull constant pain in the lumbar region on the side of the affected kidney. Dysuric disorders in most patients are absent. Diagnosis is carried out on the basis of anamnesis,
  10. Chronic pyelonephritis
    Chronic pyelonephritis is a long-term non-specific infectious-inflammatory process with predominant and initial damage to the interstitial tissue, the renal pelvis system and the renal tubules with subsequent involvement of the glomeruli and kidney vessels. Etiology. Chronic pyelonephritis is caused by various types of infection: Escherichia coli, Proteus, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
  11. Pyelonephritis
    Currently, the term "pyelonephritis" refers to a nonspecific infectious-inflammatory process, localized mainly in the renal pelvis-pan system and its tubulo-interstitial zone. It is proved that, due to structural and functional, features of the kidneys and urinary tract, regardless of the pathways of infection, the inflammatory process simultaneously or sequentially
  12. Pyelonephritis
    The clinical picture of acute pyelonephritis Acute pyelonephritis is a disease of the kidneys, primarily interstitial tissue (with the involvement of the cup-pelvis-plating system) caused by a nonspecific pathogen. As a rule, E. coli, staphylococci, streptococci, Proteus enter the brain layer of the kidney by hematogenous or urinogennogo ascending. In the latter case
  13. Pyelonephritis and urinary tract infections
    Pyelonephritis is one of the most common diseases of the kidneys, accompanied by lesions of the tubules, interstitium and renal pelvis. Pyelonephritis occurs in two forms. Acute pyelonephritis causes a bacterial infection. It is characterized by kidney damage associated with infection of the urinary tract. Chronic pyelonephritis is a more complex disease: bacterial
  14. Acute pyelonephritis
    Acute pyelonephritis is an acute inflammatory disease of the kidney with the localization of the pathological process in the intercellular tissue, damage to the tubules, blood and lymphatic vessels of the renal stroma. Recently, it has been regarded as synonymous with acute infectious tubulo-interstitial nephritis. There are primary tubulo-interstitial nephritis, developing without any prior
    For diagnosis using the following criteria. Clinical. 1. Complaints of general weakness, fatigue, headaches, nausea, vomiting, pain in the lumbar region. 2. Anamnesis of the disease - past urinary tract infection (especially acute pyelonephritis). 3. Objective data - pallor and dry skin, weight loss, nose bleeds, many
    In most cases, chronic pyelonephritis is a consequence of an uncured acute and can manifest itself in a diverse clinic. In some patients, it occurs latently, accompanied only by moderate pain and leukocyturia. In other patients, the disease is periodically exacerbated, and the process extends to new areas of the kidney parenchyma, causing sclerosis of not only the tubules, but also the glomeruli.
  17. Acute pyelonephritis in pregnant women (or exacerbation of chronic pyelonephritis)
    Pyelonephritis is an infectious-inflammatory disease of the kidneys with a primary lesion of tubulointerstitial tissue, pyelocaliceal system, and often with the involvement of the parenchyma. Pyelonephritis takes the first place in the structure of extragenital pathology in pregnant women and puerperas, its frequency reaches 10% and higher; most often (about 80%) of his attacks develop in II
  18. Acute pyelonephritis
    Acute pyelonephritis is a nonspecific infectious disease of the kidneys with a primary lesion of interstitial tissue and the renal pelvis system. ETIOLOGY AND PATHOGENESIS ¦ Pathogens. ? Often found: gram-negative microorganisms (Escherichia coli - 75%, Proteus spp. - 8%, Klebsiella spp. - 6%, etc.). ? Rare: Gram-positive microorganisms (Staphylococcus
