  • Urine P:C Ratio
    a short time frame and are sensitive to urine volume and concentration The benefit of the urine protein creatinine ratio is that it automatically corrects for variations in urine volume and concentration Is a negative result for protein on a urine dipstick insignificant Urine protein dipsticks are semi quantitative and are influenced by urine pH volume concentration and color While it is very easy to perform the urine dipstick is neither a sensitive nor specific indicator of urinary protein loss The lower limit of detection for urine protein on a dipstick is 30 mg dL The IDEXX Urine P C Ratio has a lower limit for urine protein of 5 mg dL and is highly specific for dog and cat proteinuria Furthermore the IDEXX Urine P C Ratio corrects for variations in urine concentration and volume You should perform a Urine P C Ratio on all suspect renal disease patients regardless of a negative urine protein dipstick result At what age should dogs and cats be tested for early renal disease with an IDEXX Urine P C Ratio Given the high prevalence of renal disease in geriatric dogs and cats IDEXX recommends adding the Urine P C Ratio to your senior care diagnostic protocol We also recommend performing a Urine P C Ratio on all animals suspected of having renal disease regardless of age Special attention should be given to breeds predisposed to renal disease as well as all patients with diseases associated with secondary renal complications After identifying a dog or cat that tests positive on the IDEXX Urine P C Ratio what is the next step As described in the diagnostic protocol PDF the first step is to localize the protein to the kidney by ruling out prerenal and postrenal causes of proteinuria This is done by assessing the physical examination complete urinalysis including sediment exam serum chemistry panel and complete blood count for evidence of underlying disease conditions that could be responsible for the proteinuria The next step is to rule out transient proteinuria by repeating the IDEXX Urine P C Ratio After these steps are completed the diagnostic protocol aids in the evaluation of urinary protein loss Why do I have to determine persistence Because the urine protein creatinine ratio is so sensitive it can detect very small amounts of protein in the urine that are of a transient nature You have to rule out this transient or functional proteinuria which can be associated with increases in blood pressure as well as stress exercise and fever in order to determine that the protein is significant Does the Urine P C Ratio result correlate to patient prognosis Several studies indicate a strong correlation between the UPC result and patient prognosis The higher the urine protein creatinine ratio the worse the prognosis Since the IDEXX Urine P C Ratio is fully quantitative the veterinarian can use this test not only to diagnose renal disease but also as a prognostic indicator Sequential Urine P C Ratios can be used
