Use of Plasma Renin Activity to Monitor Mineralocorticoid Treatment in Dogs with Primary Hypoadrenocorticism: Desoxycorticosterone Versus Fludrocortisone

Abstract

BACKGROUND Measurement of plasma renin activity (PRA) is the gold standard for monitoring mineralocorticoid treatment in humans with primary hypoadrenocorticism (PH). OBJECTIVES To compare PRA in dogs with newly diagnosed PH, dogs with diseases mimicking PH, and healthy dogs, and evaluate measurement of PRA to monitor therapeutic effects in dogs with PH… (More)
