8:00 a.m.–8:50 a.m. Mandalay Bay D, Level 2
Urinalysis: Why Pan for Gold?
Presented by Dennis B. DeNicola, DVM, PhD, DACVP
Learn how to evaluate urine specific gravity and proteinuria as part of a complete urinalysis (UA), and understand the importance of the complete UA for patients with kidney disease. You’ll see how the SediVue Dx Urine Sediment Analyzer, with its exciting new technology, helps ensure accurate and reliable results.
2:00 p.m.–2:20 p.m. Location: WVC Learning Lounge, Exhibition Hall, Level 1
Urinalysis: A Critical Part of the Minimum Database
Presented by Jennifer Ogeer, DVM, MS, MBA

SDMA Matters: Now There’s a More Reliable Way to Test and Assess Kidney Function
Presented by Jane Robertson, DVM, DACVIM
