The urinary tract includes kidneys, ureters, cloaca, and bladder in reptiles and amphibians. Problem-oriented medicine includes identifying clinical problems, defining diagnoses for each problem, implementing a plan to address each diagnosis, and reformulating the plan as indicated in follow-up evaluations. This paper is intended to serve as an instructional aide for those who are preparing for certification in reptile and amphibian practice.

Characterizing the Hematologic and Plasma Chemistry Profiles of Captive Chinese Water Dragons, Physignathus cocincinus
TLDR
Overall, the dragons in this study were clinically healthy, and the reference range established from these two pop- ulations may be used as a basis for comparison in clinical cases.
Hypocalcemia and Hyperphosphatemia in a Green Iguana, Iguana iguana, with Concurrent Elevation of Serum Glutamic Oxalic Transaminase
TLDR

VARIATIONS IN THE BWOD CHEMISTRY OF THE WGGERHEAD SEA TURTLE, CARETTA CARETTA
TLDR
The complex changes in blood chemistry observed reflect changes in the sea turtle physiology and biochemistry; signifi­ cant changes from normal in plasma magnesium, potassium, and hematocrit could be useful indicators of hibernation in sea turtles.
