My cat has a distended belly and is tight all the way down his body. I've been to the vet two times, and no real answer besides his numbers are going up a little on kidneys, and he has renal problems. Could there be a coating on his kidneys?


It's so hard when you get no clear answers. There could be cancer that's not readily visible, or that is metastasizing. Continue to watch him. Is he eating and drinking? I think continuing frequent vet visits and tests is also a good idea until you can get an answer one way or another.
