Table 2 Urine specific gravity (USG) and urine pH as analysed by dipstrip and pH meter from spot urine samples obtained during each study visit. Urine pH analysed by pH meter from 24 h pooled urine samples are also provided

From: Evaluation of dogs with genetic hyperuricosuria and urate urolithiasis consuming a purine restricted diet: a pilot study

  1. Data are presented as the least square means ± standard error
  2. Urine pH on spot urine samples were significantly lower when compared to the baseline values
