From: Ultrasonographically determined renal values and comparisons to serum biochemistry renal variables in aged semi-captive cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus)

  Males Females Males and femalesa
Number 17 10 27
Serum creatinine (μmol/L) 240 (108–463) 248 (179–330) 243 (108–463)
Serum urea (mmol/L) 12.7 (7.3–22.7) 12.8 (7.9–18.3) 12.73 (7.3–22.7)
Urine specific gravity 1.052 (1.025–1.072) 1.054 (1.042–1.062) 1052 (1025–1072)
  1. aThere were no significant differences between males and females and data were thus combined
