  1. P-values of the different concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP) and nerve growth factor (NGF) in serum and after normalizing to creatinine (CRP/ Crea; NGF/Crea) in urine samples for the different groups. Measurements including all CRP/Crea values are shown in the column “CRP/Crea urine all”. Calculations of samples only with detectable values are shown in the column “CRP/Crea Urine”. P-values comparing dogs with spinal cord disorders and associated micturition dysfunction with (cystitis) and without cystitis (no cystitis) and dogs regaining the ability to urinate (dogs with normal voiding) are shown in the last rows. Significances are highlighted with an asterisk (*).Spinal Cord disorders (SC)
