Question:
What is PKD?
Answer:
PKD means Polycystic Kidney Disease, it is an illness of the kidneys, where cysts can be found. Depending how fast PKD developes, the cats may not become very old, if the cysts grow and increase fast. The disease was first recognized in Persians by Dr. Biller and DiBartolo. But meanwhile this disease can be found also in other breeds. Recently a DNA-testing was developed, before that test the cats were examined with ultrasound. Of course such cats are not used for breeding and are neutered.
