Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a big challenge in clinical practice because of the variability of symptoms and laboratory findings. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate: a) the relations between urine culture results and urinalysis parameters; b) the results of the antimicrobial susceptibility tests. Urine samples were collected by cystocentesis from 252 dogs and 52 cats, whose diagnostic workup included a differential diagnosis of UTI: all samples underwent a complete urinalysis, UPC ratio assessment and urine culture.

Abstract

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a big challenge in clinical practice because of the variability of symptoms and laboratory findings. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate: a) the relations between urine culture results and urinalysis parameters; b) the results of the antimicrobial susceptibility tests. Urine samples were collected by cystocentesis from 252 dogs and 52 cats, whose diagnostic workup included a differential diagnosis of UTI: all samples underwent a complete urinalysis, UPC ratio assessment and urine culture.
