- PLN and PLE in Wheaten Terriers
Protein-Losing Enteropathy (PLE), Protein-Losing Nephropathy (PLN), and renal dysplasia are conditions commonly seen in the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. North Carolina State University is conducting research into this condition and maintains this website. Site includes information on clinical presentation, pathogenesis, and treatment of PLE and PLN, as well as screening recommendations and sample submission information.

This tutorial is intended to supplement the instruction in the renal physiology section of the Medical Physiology course taught at Kuwait University, and covers anatomy, physiology, etc.
- Testing For Polycystic Kidney Disease In Cats
PKD is inherited as a single autosomal recessive trait; it is estimated that over 37% of Persians have PKD. This condition often doesn't show clinical signs until after the animal has been used for breeding and may be misdiagnosed as chronic renal failure; therefore, genetic testing is especially valuable. This website provides information on how practitioners should select a PKD testing laboratory, information on the feline genome project at UC-Davis, and breeder information.
- The International Renal Interest Society (IRIS)
The IRIS site, sponsored by Novartis, was created to help veterinary practitioners better diagnose, understand, and treat renal disease in cats and dogs. Site includes the interpretation of plasma creatinine, working up proteinuria, and an epidemiological study of chronic renal disease in dogs and cats. (IRIS is still accepting case reports for this epidemiology project.)
