Routine laboratory tests used to assess urine are quick and inexpensive, as well as reliable, when performed by a well-trained laboratory professional. Practical Veterinary Urinalysis is intended to provide laboratory diagnosticians—veterinarians, medical technologists, veterinary technicians, and veterinary students—with a comprehensive study of all aspects of routine urinalysis, including chemical analysis and microscopy. Those tasked with performing routine urinalysis will find both consolidated and comprehensive information needed to produce timely and accurate results.
Practical Veterinary Urinalysis is designed to provide the reader with a concise, systematic overview of renal physiology and urine production. Both functional and physiological aspects of the urinary system are reviewed with disease processes highlighted. When appropriate, discussions are reinforced by images, tables, and drawings. Specimen collection and handling are reviewed with emphasis on differences in laboratory findings between three frequently used methods.
An in-depth discussion of urine physical properties, chemical analysis, and sediment analysis is covered in separate chapters. Summarized charts are provided as testing guides when appropriate. Within the microscopic analysis section, Practical Veterinary Urinalysis contains images of the wet prep along with cytology (Wright’s stain), and Gram stain if indicated.
Abnormal or suspicious results obtained by routine urinalysis may mandate additional or confirmatory tests. A chapter dedicated to advanced urine diagnostics presents newer test methodologies, and associated laboratory procedures are discussed.
Practical Veterinary Urinalysis also includes sections dedicated to laboratory setup, including physical and functional requirements along with instrument, reagent, and supply preferences. Quality assurance measures and quality goals are defined, assuring laboratorians that the results they produce are reliable.
