Until now, veterinarians have lacked a reliable, routine diagnostic to assess kidney function in hyperthyroid cats because hyperthyroidism masks the presence of kidney disease.

Thankfully, there’s SDMA (symmetric dimethylarginine). In a recent. retrospective data analysis, SDMA reliably identified 6 times more hyperthyroid cats with kidney disease. Creatinine missed 82% of the cats that SDMA identified as having kidney disease.1

With the new Catalyst SDMA and Total T4 Kit you can identify kidney disease in hyperthyroid patients using one sample. Add both tests to your existing chemistry profiles for the price of one and make crucial decisions in real time.

Read the full story on hyperthyroid cats and SDMA.
