OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic performance of the anion gap (AG) with 2 physicochemical approaches to identify unmeasured anions. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING University teaching hospital. ANIMALS Eighty-four dogs and 14 cats presenting to a university teaching hospital emergency room. INTERVENTIONS All dogs and cats in which venous blood samples for acid-base, lactate, and serum biochemical analysis were all collected within 60 minutes of each other, over a 5-month… CONTINUE READING
