Present study was conducted in the Division of Medicine, Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar. The aim of the study was to evaluate relationship of three variables age, sex and breed with regard to incidence of renal disorder in dog. Overall incidence of renal disorders was 12.03%. The incidence increased with advancement of age as 17 (1.79%), 32 (7.58%), 42 (15.73%) and 23 (33.33%) dogs in the age groups of < 6 years, 6 -10 years, 10-14 years and >14 year, respectively were suffering from renal disorders. The breed wise distribution of renal disorders in dogs is shown in Table 2. The highest incidence was noted in Labrador dogs (21.73%), followed by Dalmatian (18.18%), Bulldog (15.9%), Bhutia (14.8%), German shepherd (13.76%), Rottweiler (13.6%), Great Dane (12%), mixed breed (11.7%), Doberman (8.57%) and Pomeranian (7.9%). Interestingly lowest incidence was recorded in mixed breed (11.7%), Doberman (8.57%) and Pomeranian (7.9%). From above study it can be concluded that age and genotype has an important role in incidence of renal diseases in canines, the present study can serve as a model for study of renal disorders in humans.
