Abstract

AIMS: To compare the performance of five refractometers for determination of urine specific gravity in cats and dogs, with reference to weight of total solids and pycnometer analysis. METHODS: Urine samples from 27 cats and 31 dogs submitted for routine urinalysis were included. Urine specific ...

Abstract

Background: Proteinuria is a marker of chronic kidney disease in dogs and a risk factor for increased morbidity and death. Predictive models using the results of readily available screening tests could foster early recognition. Objective: To determine whether urine specific gravity (USG) and...

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate effects of the addition of glucose to dog and cat urine on urine specific gravity (USG) and determine whether glucosuria affects assessment of renal concentrating ability. SAMPLE: Urine samples from 102 dogs and 59 cats. PROCEDURES: Urine for each species was pooled to create ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess whether the urinary dipstick reaction for protein in combination with urine specific gravity is able to distinguish proteinuric and non-proteinuric dogs. In retrospective study, 163 urine samples with complete urinalysis and urine protein to creatinine ratio...

Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) is able to measure the attenuation of urine in Hounsfield units (HU) on abdominal imaging studies. This study was designed to measure the correlation of urine attenuation with urine specific gravity in urine samples of 40 dogs, providing a noninvasive measure of urine...

Abstract

This combined retrospective-prospective study evaluated the correlation between canine urine color (UC) and urine specific gravity (USG). Urine color was positively correlated with USG, but the relationship was not significantly improved by use of a UC chart. Urine color as an indicator of USG is...

Abstract

The stability of canine urine samples is essential when the samples cannot be analyzed immediately. The objective of this study was to investigate the stability of canine urine samples at room temperature and under refrigerated conditions. Samples from 20 dogs were collected, divided, and stored at ...

Abstract

Background: Serum creatinine concentrations are higher in Greyhounds when compared with nonsighthound breeds. Greyhounds might also have higher urine creatinine concentrations compared with other breeds, which could affect urine protein-to-creatinine ratio (UPC) references. Objectives: We aimed to...

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate effects of blood contamination on dipstick results, specific gravity (SG), and urine protein-to-urine creatinine ratio (UPCR) for urine samples from dogs and cats. SAMPLE: Urine samples collected from 279 dogs and 120 cats. PROCEDURES: Urine pools were made for each species (...

Abstract

Background: Urine specific gravity (USG) is an integral part of the urinalysis and a key component of many clinical decisions, and fluctuations in USG have the potential to impact case management. Objectives: To determine the intraindividual variability of first morning USG results in healthy dogs. ...
