Hyponatremia and hypernatremia are the common electrolyte abnormalities diagnosed in dogs and cats. Although many patients with abnormal sodium concentrations are asymptomatic, these abnormalities are clinically important due to the potential for substantial morbidity and mortality. This lecture discusses the mechanisms of developing hyponatremia and hypernatremia in dogs and cats, as well as their clinical consequences. Subsequently, this session will cover the medical treatment, including fluid therapy, for abnormal sodium concentrations in dogs and cats.
