PMID:  17092326     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 2-year-old female Greyhound was presented for inappetence and lethargy. On referral, results of diagnostic tests indicated renal glucosuria, increased excretion of selected amino acids and abnormal fractional excretion of electrolytes consistent with renal tubular dysfunction. Systemic blood pressure was elevated. Renal biopsy revealed mild proximal renal tubular damage consistent with a subacute toxic or hypoxic insult. Systemic hypertension, renal glucosuria and altered fractional excretion of electrolytes resolved during the 7 day period of hospital treatment. The Greyhound resumed training without recurrence of renal dysfunction.
