Site Purpose: This web site is meant to provide information for clients considering renal transplantation in their cats and is not meant to be an all-encompassing thesis on chronic renal failure or feline kidney transplantation. It is strongly suggested, if you decide that a kidney transplant for your cat is of interest to you, that you contact the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine or your veterinarian for more information.

History of feline renal transplantation at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine:
Our program in renal transplantation was successfully initiated in 1995 by Dr. Jonathan McAnulty. Dr. McAnulty received his training at the University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery- Division of Transplantation under the tutelage of Dr. Folkert O. Belzer. Dr. McAnulty joined the faculty of the School of Veterinary Medicine Department of Surgical Sciences in 1991 and extended his research training in transplantation science to development of a clinical transplant program for cats. Since that time we have had the opportunity to help a number of clients with pets with chronic renal failure. We hope that this web site will assist you in evaluating if a transplant is the correct choice for you and your pet.
