Equine Blood/urinalysis - Translation Please?


Recommended Posts

My 22 year old fellow is showing his age... the Vet thinks his kidneys are starting to fail.

Can anybody give an opinion on these ?

Sorry they are so small....

No.

Thought about it. Consulted with his partner and decided against them.

 

He is drinking quite a lot. Chomping his salt block.

He is also urinating a lot....a lot... and randomly. In the aisle.

Drips urine sometimes.....On the poor blacksmith.

I have noticed some minor wobbles in his hind end but I have also seen him trotting an cantering (slowly) in his 10 acre pasture with no difficulties.

'Old age wobblers' ?

Yes, he did shed out normally. And his winter coat is coming in normally.

I am familiar with Cushings....seen a couple of cases.

 

My Vet told me the test results which Imacribbled down quickly and gave me his opinions, but I only picked up the paper copies the other day and I just didn't know how to decider all those 'short forms/initials' on them and wondered if anybody here could tell me what they were

ie NEU and LYM

And UREA CREA CA K

 

He is eating just fine...teeth were just done the same day as the blood work.

Other than the random incontinence /frequent peeing and some subtle hind-end wobbles/weakness, he is doing OK.... being his usual pushy old self.

 

One week at a time.....

Yes... Thanks so much and your idea about Cushings is most certainly food for thought....
