Please send good thoughts for my big boy Vinny. His creatitnine level was 1.9 and it isn't supposed to be over 1.6. I called the vet that removed his plate in March to see what his level was in march, they said it was 1.7. I just dropped a sample off at the vet. I am praying it is normal. I should find out tonight.

I've also had them higher on that scale. Assuming BUN is normal, likely just ordinary variation. Greyhounds can run high creatinines.

I was going to chime in waht Diane said. You have to look at BUN + Creatinine + (I was told by our shop vet) + urinalysis details in combination.

The reading by itself really doesn't tell much. Misty ran at 2.6 with a normal BUN(26) but when she got sick, she ran a 2.8 which still would have been ok for her, but her BUN jumped to 88. She was in kidney failure

Yes, Sizzle's was just at 1.9 last week and the vet assured me that greyhounds can run higher that other dogs and still be normal.

 

Don't worry and sending positive thoughts for Vinny anyhow!

We constantly deal with this in our group. We get the panicky calls about creatinine levels all the time. A long time ago (we got our first greyhound in 1991) the "normal" creatinine level on the charts was 1.9 and then for some reason it was lowered to 1.6. As long as the BUN level is OK, don't worry. One of my females constantly has a 2.1 creatinine level. It's normal for her.
