Protein In Urine, Translating Measurements

Harold's recent in-house urinalysis came back with a protein of 500 mg/dl. How does that correspond to the 1+ or 2+ measurement I'm used to seeing?

In our laboratory 1+ is 30 mg/dL, 2+ is 100 mg/dL and 3+ is 500 (or more) mg/dL

More importantly --what was his UPC?

Didn't get it.

This morning I brought in a fresh urine catch and a letter describing Harold's predicament (see previous thread about Harold).

It can be hard to catch the vets as this busy clinic so the clerk ordered a basic in-house test <_< rather than the full urinalysis that would need to be sent out.

pH was 6.0

Harold is now on Clamavox. I am to check with the vet on Friday to see if we'll do a full workup and whether to continue the Clamavox.

So he may have a mild infection. His urine was rather dilute this morning but then he'd had to go out twice during the night. Plus there was a big puddle of pee on pad on his bed.

They'd already gotten rid of it. I'll see how Harold fares this week and then do another full urinalysis.

 

Rather than run 2 threads on Harold, lets end this one and go over here:

When I first got Andy he had 3+ protein in his urine. We never did figure out why. They didn't have enough urine left for a UPC so I went back with another sample. I'll go check out your other thread too. Good luck.
