As the quality of veterinary medicine continues to evolve, the longevity of companion animals is increasing. With the development of more diagnostic testing modalities such as microalbuminuria, proper interpretation and early intervention have become vital in delaying the progression of renal insufficiency and failure. In addition, detecting proteinuria may indicate the presence of a systemic disease, cuing veterinarians to conduct more diagnostic tests, which may help identify an underlying disease process.
