Abstract Renal clearance studies were undertaken on 15 cats, 10 with mild chronic renal disease (CRD) and five with severe CRD. Plasma creatinine concentration and urinary specific gravity measurements in the mild and severe CRD cats were significantly different (P < 0–05) and were 131 ± 26‐7 umol/litre and 1–034 ± 0–016, and 392 ± 117‐3 nmol/litre and 1–015 ± 0–002, respectively. Endogenous creatinine clearance in the mild and severe CRD cats were significantly different (P < 0–01) and were 2–3 ± 0–58 and 0–62 ± 0–230 ml/min/kg bodyweight, respectively. Hypokalemia was present in one cat but it was not associated with hypercalcinuria. Two cats with mild CRD had hypophosphataemia, hypercalcaemia and hyperphosphaturia which was suggestive of primary hyperparathyroidism, while two cats with severe CRD had hyperphosphataemia and hyperphosphaturia which was indicative of renal secondary hyperparathyroidism. Eight of the 15 cats were subsequently necropsied and were found to have segmental atrophic nephropathy. Copyright
