Table 1

Comparison of age, creatinine, and SDMA concentrations and UPC on the day of diagnosis of leishmaniosis for Group A versus Group B dogs.

Group A (median and range) Group B (median and range)

Age (months)42 (5–120)62 (23–156)0.14
Creatinine (mg/dL)0.9 (0.7–1.3)1.3 (0.8–3.6)0.01
SDMA (µg/dL)12 (8–22)17 (9–42)0.018
UPC0.28 (0.08–3.19)4.15 (0.17–13.9)<0.0001

Group A: dogs with no evidence of renal disease based on the IRIS staging for CKD [25] after six months of diagnosis of leishmaniosis. Group B: dogs with CKD classified as IRIS stage 1 to stage 3 and dogs euthanized or dead due to renal disease after six months of diagnosis of leishmaniosis. : significance level (Mann–Whitney test). : number of dogs; UPC: urinary protein/creatinine ratio.
