Kidney Assays: BUN,CREA, Uric acid, Specific gravity.
Measures kidneys ability to remove nitrogenous waste. 75% of kidney is not functioning to be elevated. BUN * serum preferred
used to evaluate renal function CREA *Serum or Plasma used
Less useful in mammals. more meaningful in Dalmatians. Birds= produced in liver, secreted in kidneys. Uric acid
