    Great News! IDEXX will be releasing the SMDA Kidney Biomarker test this summer!

    It's exciting to see recent research come to light in the clinical setting where we can all take advantage of this new kidney biomarker.

    A copy of the information about the test from IDEXX can be downloaded.  Go to the SMALL ANIMAL PRACTITIONERS GROUP. (Join the Group if you haven't already done so) ... Click on DOCUMENTS > then download intro-kidney-test-sdma.
