Estimation of glomerular filtration rate and evaluation of renal function in ferrets (Mustela putorius furo).

Abstract

Three methods of determining glomerular filtration rate (GFR) were performed in adult ferrets, 9 months to 7 years old. Endogenous creatinine clearance was determined, using serum and urine creatinine values obtained during 24- and 48-hour collection periods from 27 ferrets housed in metabolic cages. Creatinine and radiolabeled inulin were administered to… (More)
