Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] re: Phosphorus levels in CRF

Hi again Michaela,
Usually the Phosphorus will rise with the BUN,
but creatinine rarely increases. This lack of elevation
in creatinine seems to be a ferret only thing.
I would go with the 2/3 to 3/4 of the kidney being
damaged when the BUN and Phosphorus increases.
