Measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in cats allows detection of a decreased kidney function in an early stage of kidney disease. The plasma clearance of exogenous creatinine (PECCT) seems to be a promising alternative to the more complicated methods for GFR measurement in cats. The objective of this study was to compare PECCT, exo-iohexol (Pex-ICT) and endo-iohexol (Pen-ICT) for discriminating healthy cats (H), hyperthyroid cats (HT) and cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD) suspected to have respectively normal, high and low GFR values.
