Elevations should be interpreted with caution in the presence of dehydration and in these circumstances, re-evaluation after correction of hydration status is always advisable. Elevations occur in the presence of renal disease and here, creatinine may be a more valuable diagnostic and prognostic indicator than urea. Renal disease is rare in elite racehorses and the inclusion of these renal parameters in standard screening profiles is therefore questionable.
