URINE-NATION: Urinalysis for Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians
May 4, 2013
An in-depth course in renal parameters and urinalysis for veterinary technicians and veterinarians
This course is designed as a brief review of renal physiology and urine production but will also review current laboratory testing. By the end of this course you will:
- Have a thorough understanding of clinically relevant renal physiology
- Identify cells, crystals and organisms in urine sediment
- Perform all common urinalysis testing
- Combine information from serum chemistry and urinalysis to get the most from your laboratory data

Lab Station One: The complete urinalysis
Attendees will perform a complete urinalysis (urine provided) including preparation, urine chemistry, specific gravity and sediment examination.
Lab Station Two: Urine sediment examination
20 microscopes will be set up with interesting and common findings in urine sediment. Participants will rotate at each microscope and perform a full sediment examination. At the conclusion, participants will feel very comfortable with cell identification, quantification of cells and casts and crystal identification.
You can earn 7 hours of CE credit by attending this course.
