In recent years, there has been increasing interest in the fact that certain common conditions in feline medicine are associated with abnormally raised urinary protein levels (proteinuria). Closer attention to the finding of proteinuria and a comparison of normal and diseased cats has led to the realisation that much lower levels of urinary protein should be considered abnormal than were previously thought. The significance of proteinuria is not yet fully understood in every case, but veterinary knowledge in this area is advancing rapidly and the need to test for and treat renal proteinuria is now being recognised. This article discusses the aetiology of renal proteinuria and its significance in cats, together with how it can be measured and treated.
