Abstract

Background: Measurement of serum ionized calcium is not always available in practice. Total calcium (tCa) might not be reliable for determination of calcium status in cats. Objectives: To predict serum ionized calcium concentration from signalment, biochemistry profile and T4, and compare predicted ...

Abstract

Objectives: Magnesium has been 'the forgotten ion' for many years. Over the past decade, however, the role of magnesium in essential physiological functions and several illness conditions have been elucidated. Nevertheless, the investigation of magnesium in cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD)...

AbstractFull Text

Etheylene glycol (EG) poisoning is highly dangerous in cats and a small dose of it could cause signs which are initially non-specific and may be easily missed. So, our study was preformed to determine the various effects of EG administration on cats. 10 cats of both sexes aging 1-3 years old were...

Abstract

Calcium is a macroelement that is part of the mineral composition of the diet of companion animals, and is considered a cation of strong alkalizing power, increasing urinary pH. Calcium salts have different solubilities and depending on the anion to which calcium is associated with, it can be more...

Abstract

Feline chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with high variability in severity of CKD-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD). The calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) regulates circulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcium concentrations. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the CaSR are...

Abstract

Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common comorbidity in cats with hypercalcemia, but whether CKD is a risk factor for hypercalcemia is unclear. Hypercalcemia often is diagnosed based on total calcium concentration (tCa), which tends to underestimate the ionized calcium concentration...

Abstract

The effect of extruded foods intake with different contents of starch, protein and hydroxyproline were evaluated on water balance, oxalate renal excretion, urine chemical composition and the relative urine supersaturation with calcium oxalate (RSSCaOx) in cats. Three complete and balanced diets...

Abstract

Case summary: A 9-year-old male neutered European Shorthair cat was presented owing to vomiting and mild weight loss. Clinical examination was normal, but biochemistry results showed increased concentrations of total calcium (4.05 mmol/l; reference interval [RI] 2.20-2.90 mmol/l) and ionised ...

Abstract

Background: Dietary phosphate and protein restriction decreases plasma PTH and FGF-23 concentrations and improves survival time in azotemic cats, but has not been examined in cats that are not azotemic. Hypothesis: Feeding a moderately protein- and phosphate-restricted diet decreases PTH and FGF-23 ...
