The anteater (Tamandua spp.) is a species with low population density, it does not know several aspects of its natural history, its habitat presents high rates of deforestation and fragmentation and its state of endangered species, are characteristics that make the anteater. The main threat to the species is the loss of habitat, thousands of hectares of tropical forest are destroyed or fragmented annually due to agricultural activities and cattle. The present study describes the finding of chronic kidney damage in an adult female captured in the Tamaulipas highlands in the Gulf of Mexico, during which, during clinical evaluation and clinical feeding, it was expressed as a sign of weakness, progressive thinning, infection moderate cutaneous. In addition to dyspnea and diarrhea, necropsy and histopathology were performed in which a severe uremic syndrome process was identified with renal insufficiency, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and a severe systemic process due to chronic renal damage, lack of diet or inadequate diet. Has led to the expression of degenerative processes of chronic diseases that imply the survival of the species, together with the high affectation of its habitat. This, among other reasons, draws attention to the importance of conducting research that provides useful information about these agencies, both in the state and in the rest of the country.
