Abstract

The aim of the study was to establish values for urea and creatinine in serum from 23 healthy Black Agouti (Dasyprocta fuliginosa) kept in captivity in a Zoo in Lima. The sera were harvested after centrifugation and levels of urea and creatinine determined by colorimetric methods using diagnostic commercial kits. The mean value of urea was 11.47 ± 1.72 mg/dl and for creatinine was 2.41 ± 1.06 mg/dl. None statistical difference was found due to sex or age.
