Management of Hypernatraemia in a Dog

About this Episode

Hypernatraemia is a serious electrolyte disturbance that can arise from a number of different conditions. Returning of sodium concentrations to the normal range is crucial in patient management – and needs to be carried out in a careful manner, to avoid decreasing serum osmolality too rapidly. This short podcast reviews an approach to the management of a dog with hypernatraemia, with the aim of helping avoid common pitfalls of rapid sodium correction.
