Abstract / Description of output

A 3.5-year-old, entire female, Shar Pei dog was referred to the Hospital for Small Animals, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, UK for further investigation of azotemia and proteinuria. The dog had a 2-year history of recurrent episodes of lethargy, pyrexia, lameness of the hind limbs, and swollen, hot hock joints. These symptoms were attenuated with the administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The dog was up-to-date with vaccinations and deworming, and had no history of travel outside Scotland.
