Practical Veterinary Urinalysis is a well-illustrated laboratory manual for obtaining accurate results and interpreting the findings of urine evaluation. Presenting a comprehensive, clinically relevant resource for sample handling, proper testing methodology, microscopic evaluation, and analysis, the book is an ideal bench-top guide for use in the veterinary laboratory. With an emphasis on the practical information necessary to incorporating urinalysis techniques in daily practice, Practical Veterinary Urinalysis offers clear guidance on urinalysis as a diagnostic tool. Beginning with an overview of renal physiology and urine production, the heart of the book is devoted to examining and analyzing urine samples, including physical properties, chemical analysis, and sediment analysis. Chapters also cover advanced diagnostics, with state-of-the-art methodologies and procedures such as microalbuminuria, and laboratory set-up, including physical and equipment requirements and quality assurance information. Practical Veterinary Urinalysis is an invaluable tool to achieving reliable results and a useful addition to any practice library.
