BACKGROUND Iohexol is a nonradioactive marker that has been used successfully to test intestinal permeability in humans with inflammatory bowel disease. There is evidence in dogs that iohexol shares a similar permeability pathway as (51)chromium-EDTA, the gold standard marker. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine an optimal oral iohexol… CONTINUE READING
