Protein in urine????

918 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  vjw
Charley just had his teeth cleaned and the vet did a urine test as well, that came back positive for protein. They didn't find any explanation for it and told me to take him back in 2 weeks for another check.
Any experience with this? What could have caused this or it's nothing to worry about?

How much protein? Very small amounts can be perfectly normal.
I don't know, they just told me there were some...I'm not too worried he is eating and drinking just fine and he acts normal.
You can google "canine proteinuria" and find information online. has one of the more simpler articles to read on proteinuria.

I'm hoping this is a one-time occurrence for Charley.
