Diseases of the Urinary System

Chapter 70 Diseases of the Urinary System


Fortunately, urinary tract problems are rare in properly maintained sheep and goats. The main concerns are plants that are known to be nephrotoxic and urolithiasis. Ordinarily animals will not graze plants that are toxic, unless they have nothing else to graze. Ensuring plentiful, wholesome forage should ensure that animals do not become exposed to plant toxicities. If plant toxicity does occur, the animal should be removed from the offending plant and supportive care instituted.

THE FERRET


Older ferrets may exhibit signs of renal failure, as do other animals. Urinary calculi, once common, are rarely seen because of improved diets. Most urinary problems can be related to one or more of the endocrine abnormalities and can be treated as done for the dog or cat.


Urinary disease in aging ferrets is similar to the disease in cats and dogs. Renal failure can be classified as either acute (may be reversible) or chronic (usually not reversible).
