SDMA helps lead to the diagnosis and treatment of suspect pyelonephritis and improvement in kidney function

Case Study: Reese

Anesthesia for patients with renal disease

A single incresaed SDMA result can be an indicator of active kidney injury and should not be ignored

Case study: Molly

An increased SDMA result on a preanesthetic screen should not be ignored

Kidney disease can be treated with early intervention


Positive impact of nutritional interventions on [SDMA] and creatinine concentrations in client-owned geriatric cats

Positive impact of nutritional interventions on [SDMA] and creatinine concentrations in client-owned geriatric dogs

SDMA allows for early intervention to treat and impact early-stage kidney disease

Case Study: Scarlet

Hyperthyroid cats and SDMA


The IDEXX SDMA Test is not impacted by weight loss and muscle mass and is only slightly blunted by hyperfiltration, making it a much more reliable marker of kidney function in hyperthyroid cats.1
