Table 3 Reference intervals (lower and upper limits) of the salivary analytes measured in the study population based on the 90% CI of the mean (P values were calculated by the D’Agostino Pearson test; n SO: number of suspected outliers, detected by the Tukey method)

From: Salivary pH, calcium, phosphorus and selected enzymes in healthy dogs: a pilot study
