Kidney disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in dogs. Knowledge about the epidemiology of kidney disease in the dog population is valuable and large-scale epidemiological studies are needed. The aim of the present study was to use insurance data to estimate kidney-related morbidity and mortality in the Swedish dog population. Insurance company data from insured dogs during the years 1995–2006 were studied retrospectively. Incidence and mortality were calculated for the whole… Expand
Prevalence of Elevated Serum Creatinine Concentration in Dogs Presenting to a Veterinary Academic Medical Center (2010–2014)
TLDR
The proportion of dogs presenting to an academic medical center with evidence of kidney injury is high compared to previous reports and might reflect a population of sicker dogs. Expand
Evaluation of Chronic Kidney Disease Progression in Dogs With Therapeutic Management of Risk Factors
TLDR
CKD diagnosis based on the persistent finding of abnormalities in early disease markers, such as serum symmetric dimethyl arginine increase and/or renal proteinuria, and timely therapeutic management of risk factors allowed for CKD stabilization, reducing progression to advanced stages, and favoring higher survival rates. Expand
Factors associated with survival in dogs with chronic kidney disease
TLDR
Multiple variables, including FGF‐23, were associated with duration of survival in CKD dogs and could be a prognostic marker in dogs with CKD. Expand
One-Year Prevalence Study of Renal Failure in Canines of Nagpur
TLDR
This study was undertaken to help clinicians in early detection of renal failure by specifying the rates of prevalence with respect to various factors. Expand
Association between breed and renal biomarkers of glomerular filtration rate in dogs
TLDR
Evidence of decreased GFR occurred commonly in older dogs of most breeds, especially geriatric dogs greater than 10 years of age, but there were some exceptions, with more significant changes affecting younger animals of several breeds. Expand
The pig as an animal model for kidney transplantation
TLDR
The present study confirmed that the pig constitutes an excellent animal model for kidney transplantation studies and could reduce IRI and thus help to prevent rejection of a transplanted kidney. Expand
Veterinary Big Data: When Data Goes to the Dogs
TLDR
Several sources of veterinary medical big data that can be used in research include medical records from primary medical care centers or referral hospitals, medical claims data from animal insurance companies, and datasets constructed specifically for research purposes. Expand
Biomarkers in canine renal disorders
TLDR
In this review, the various attributes of existing, timetested renal biomarker and the prospects of various newly developed and emerging renal biomarkers are discussed. Expand
Metabolic Differences between Dogs of Different Body Sizes
TLDR
Small dogs had a lower antioxidant status and differences in circulating amino acids and analysis of small dog metabolites and clinical parameters reflected a network which strongly associates with kidney function. Expand
Identification of biomarkers using-omics approach for the early detection of chronic kidney disease and its complications
TLDR
The strength of the urinary content, in terms of peptides and metabolites, for the early diagnosis of complex pathologies like CKD and the associated cardiovascular complications is shown. Expand

Heart disease as a cause of death in insured Swedish dogs younger than 10 years of age.
TLDR
Breed, age, and sex affect cardiac mortality in certain breeds of dogs, but no effects of month and geographic location were identified, which can assist clinicians in establishing diagnoses and breeders in defining priorities for preventative measures. Expand

Several factors were found to increase the risk of having a recorded claim, including living in a city or in central or southern Sweden, being born in the autumn, and belonging to a high-risk breed. Expand

TLDR
Breed variations in incidence rate suggests genetic components in disease development in dogs enrolled in a Swedish insurance company may be valuable in the search for genetic risk-factors or protective factors. Expand

TLDR
Differences in incidence rates among various breeds suggested a genetic involvement and knowledge of the distribution of IVD degeneration-related diseases among dogs of various breeds and ages may facilitate early diagnosis and preemptive treatments in patients at risk for developing these diseases.
