Renal Agenesis in New Zealand White Rabbit
AbstractThis report describes some cases of unilateral renal agenesis, a congenital anomaly, in a breeding colony of New Zealand white rabbits, detected on physical and necropsy examination. The cases show absence of one of the kidneys, without involvement of the other parts of the genitourinary system or any other part of the body. The animals exhibited no clinical sign of renal failure. Serum biochemical and urine analysis of the animals showed a decrease in specific gravity of the urine with slight increase in the blood urea with no marked changes in other blood and urine parameters.
