A Brief History of Feline Kidney Transplants Feline Kidney Transplant Facilities The Transplant Procedure The Kidney Recipient The Kidney Donor The Caregivers
The information in the Feline Kidney Transplants section was prepared for the Feline CRF Information Center by Sandy Carr, whose cat, Smokey, was a transplant recipient. Smokey's surgery was performed by Dr. Ross Lirtzman on April 11, 1996 at Orchard Park Veterinary Medical Center near Buffalo, New York. We wish to acknowledge Dr. Lirtzman's invaluable assistance in reviewing this material.

If your cat has had a transplant, and you would like to correspond with other "Transplant Parents", contact Sandy Carr, for more information about the Feline Kidney Transplant Mail List.
