Kidney Toxicity (Drug-Induced) in Dogs

Nephrotoxicity refers to a poisonous effect, induced by either toxic chemicals or medications, on the kidneys. Drug induced nephrotoxicity specifically refers to adverse effects on kidneys of medications used to treat or diagnose some other condition. 

Although this condition can occur in any dog, middle to old age dogs are at a higher risk. When a dog suffers from nephrotoxicity, it may show various signs including vomiting, diarrhea, depression, anorexia (loss of appetite), mouth ulcers, Bad breath (halitosis) and Bladder control problems (polyuria and polydipsia).
