Kidney Disease

Earlier intervention for more effective management of kidney disease

SDMA, symmetric dimethylarginine, is produced in every cell and released into the body’s circulation during protein degradation. SDMA is excreted by the kidneys, making it a good marker for estimating kidney function. Identifying kidney disease earlier could help you and their owners manage a pet’s kidney disease more effectively.

Pancreatic health

Quickly and confidently assess pancreatic health in dogs and cats

Make a confident diagnosis with IDEXX Reference Laboratories’ exclusive Spec cPL Test for dogs and Spec fPL Test for cats, the only tests that measure the level of pancreas-specific lipase in the blood.
