Chemical Imbalance of Urine in Dogs

Hyposthenuria is a clinical condition in which the urine is chemically imbalanced due to trauma, hormonal imbalance or excessive tension in the kidney. The concentration and regulation of urine depends on antidiuretic hormone (ADH), the protein receptor for ADH on the renal tubule and tension of the tissue within the kidney. Abnormalities may occur due to interference with the synthesis, release or actions of ADH, damage to the renal tubule and altered tension of the tissue within the kidney.  Symptoms will depend on the underlying cause of the disorder. Some common symptoms include excessive urination (polyuria), excessive thirst (polydipsia), and occasional urinary incontinence.
