New Lab test for CKD "SDMA"
« on: November 23, 2015, 08:16:55 AM »
A new test by IDEXX came out earlier this year that can be used along with BUN/Creatinine tests to assess kidney function.  The SDMA increases in dogs with CKD on average 9.5 months earlier than creatinine, allowing earlier diagnosis and treatment.
