In this study total 13060 dogs were presented in Veterinary Clinical Complex, PGIVER and Veterinary Polyclinic Jaipur. Total 161 dogs were found positive for renal failure on the basis of observation of classical clinical signs and azotemia [creatinine concentration more than 2mg/dl and BUN more than 30mg/dl] and out of 161 dogs, 30 dogs were selected randomly for research work and divided into 3 treatment groups on the basis of age. Randomly 10 healthy dogs negative for renal failure (after clinico-haemato-biochemical examination) were assigned as control group. Vomiting was the most common clinical sign (73.30%) while necrosis of the tip and lateral margins of the tongue was least common (40%). Decline in rectal temperature, increased pulse rate and respiration rate was found to be highly significant in dogs suffering from renal failure. Systolic blood pressure was also found significantly elevated in dogs with renal failure in comparison to control group.
