Urinalysis As a Noninvasive Health Screening Procedure in Falconidae (Original Studies) (Report) Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery read online review & book description:

Abstract. Clinical signs of renal disorders in animals, including raptors, are not specific. Furthermore, serum or plasma biochemical parameters change only when 70% of kidney function is lost. In this study, reference values of urine variables were established in clinically healthy falcons. Urine samples were collected from 78 mature (1 year) and immature (612 months) male and female falcons belonging to 5 species. Droppings were assessed visually for urate color and consistency and color of the liquid urine. The liquid urine was collected by aspiration into a syringe and centrifuged, and the supernatant analyzed by commercial dipstick and by a wet chemistry analysis for alkaline phosphatase, gamma glutamyl transferase, glucose, chloride, and total protein concentrations. Sex, age, and species did not affect results of biochemical urine values (P .05). Urine biochemical values did not differ significantly between fasted and fed birds. Total protein levels in urine samples decreased after 24-hour storage at 4[degrees]C. Reference ranges for clinically normal birds are reported. Key words. urinalysis, kidney, biochemistry, urine, avian, Falconidae, bird of prey
