Urinalysis should be a mandatory diagnostic tool used to evaluate a patient’s health. It provides valuable information on a patient’s clinical condition and is a great screening tool for chronic disease. A complete urine analysis includes specific gravity, physical and chemical properties, microscopic sediment examination with culture/ sensitivity testing. Unfortunately it is a much neglected facet in veterinary medicine.
This wetlab is to provide you with the practical skills to take urine analysis to the ultimate level, allowing you to see more and how to interpret the results you find. Urinalysis is a safe, non-invasive simple study of urine which requires only urination on the part of the patient; it creates no discomfort, poses no health- related risks, has no direct side effects, and evinces no adverse responses. Urine analysis when performed properly is highly reliable and we need to include it as an extension of our bedside clinical assessment.
Morning tea and a light lunch, as well as transport between the Melbourne Convention Centre and the venue (National Veterinary Care) is included.
