At the end of phase I). Plasma for AVP determination can also be obtained prior to water deprivation, although this may not be necessary. Commercially available canine and feline plasma AVP assays are not widely available in the United States, but this may change in the near future. Recently a commercially available human enzyme immunoassay kit for measurement of plasma AVP concentration was validated for use in dogs and the plasma concentration of AVP was significantly higher in dogs with congestive heart failure, compared with healthy dogs; results that suggest the assay may be diagnostically useful in dogs with suspected diabetes insipidus (Scollan et al, 2013).

C, Hypertonic dehydration results from ECF loss of water and electrolytes hyposmotic (< 280 mOsm/kg) to TBW. The ECF becomes hyperosmolar and hypertonic (> 310 mOsm/kg) and minimizes fluid loss from the ECF space. ) environment. , skin turgidity/elasticity) are proportional to the degree of hypovolemia. Hypotonic dehydration is produced by loss of electrolytes in excess of water, as is seen in hypoadrenocorticism. In this example, excessive sodium is lost in the urine and gastrointestinal tract, creating a hypotonic extracellular compartment that loses water to both the external environment and the intracellular space.
