The serum concentration of creatinine at 120 minutes (SC120) after intravenous injection of 88 mg kg-1 of creatinine, the plasma half-life (t1/2) and the plasma clearance of creatinine (PCC) were evaluated as renal function tests in 30 healthy adult dogs and six adult dogs with known or suspected renal disease. The mean SC120 in the normal dog was 0.31 +/- 0.08 mmol litre-1 and in the clinical cases 0.71 +/- 0.19 mmol litre-1. The correlation coefficients between SC120 and renal creatinine… CONTINUE READING
