By: M. Jacob*, M. Crowell, M. Fauls*, E. Griffith* & K. Ferris*

MeSH headings : Animals; Bacterial Infections / diagnosis; Bacterial Infections / veterinary; Dog Diseases / diagnosis; Dogs; Immunoassay / methods; Immunoassay / veterinary; Point-of-Care Systems; Sensitivity and Specificity; Urinary Tract Infections / diagnosis; Urinary Tract Infections / veterinary
TL;DR: The RIA test evaluated in this study accurately detected UTI of dogs, compared with detection with the criterion-referenced bacterial culture method, and could allow clinicians to diagnose UTI at the time of a patient visit and provide information useful for immediately initiating empirical antimicrobial treatment.
