The aim of the work was to determine the concentrat ion of serum cystatin C and usability of its measure ment in diagnostics of renal failure in cats. The reference point was t he value of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), calcul ated on the basis of plasma clearance of iohexol (Pcio). Seventy cats were divi ded into two groups: group I – 24 healthy cats, gro up II – 46 cats affected with renal dysfunction.
