An improvement in GFR, resolution of isosthenuria, and decreased urine output were observed in animals at T6 and T7 (Tables 2 and 3), indicating restoration of urine concentrating ability.
Urinalysis revealed isosthenuria, albuminuria, leukocyturia, and microhematuria without dysmorphic RBC (specific gravity 1.010, proteinuria 2+, glucose negative, WBC 3-5/hpf, and RBC 20-30/hpf).
Because of the potential to precipitate or worsen an existing chronic renal injury, the cats may also present isosthenuria and increased serum creatinine and the concentrations of nitrogen compounds (EGER et al., 1983; ASH, 2005).
Urine analysis revealed bilirubinuria (+ ++), glucosuria (++), proteinuria (++), ketonuria (++++), isosthenuria and acidic urine pH.
