Abstract

The lesions of chronic interstitial nephritis are commonly found in dogs over eight years of age. however, the clinical significance is of little importance in a majority of these cases, The specific etiologic agent is not easily defined and history of the individual case must be considered. Possible causes include: 1) past renal injury from Leptospira, 2) ingested nephrotoxic materials with resultant kidney scarring, or 3) chronic renal infections from bacteria, viruses, or parasites.
