Peterson, M.E. and Rishniw, M. | Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine | September 2023
The primary aim of this prospective before-and-after study was to determine the prevalence of normally concentrated (≥1.035) vs sub-maximally concentrated (<1.035) urine specific gravity (USG) in a cohort of nonazotemic hyperthyroid cats, and to assess if and how USG changed in these cats after radioiodine treatment...
