TAVM 2021 Lecture Series

Tuesday, April 13, 2021
All Day Event


Looking at Urinalysis Through a New Lens

This lecture will cover the value and correct interpretation of the urinalysis.  Topics will include method of collection, clinical relevance and treatment of decreased urine specific gravity, proteinuria, microscopic hematuria, crystalluria and bacteriuria. An update on diagnosing and treating bacterial urinary tract infections will be provided. Subclinical bacteriuria will be discussed. 

This interactive lecture will focus on key components of a minimum patient database including history, physical examination and results of CBC, biochemical profile and complete urinalysis. The focus will be on getting the most information out of the minimum database using case examples. Newer parameters such as reticulocyte hemoglobin concentration as an early marker of decreased iron availability will be covered. 

The lecture will cover the importance of screening for infectious disease from a One Health perspective. A brief review of clinically relevant statistics will be provided. Characteristics of screening tests, confirmatory tests, and monitoring response to treatment will be discussed. Feline retroviral disease, vector-borne disease, and leptospirosis will be used to highlight the appropriate use of serology and molecular diagnostics both pet-side and at the reference laboratory.

Presented by Bill Saxon, DVM, DACVIM, DACVECC.
