A high-performance liquid chromatography method to determine iohexol (IOX) and p -aminohippuric acid (PAH) in the plasma of dogs is evaluated according to recovery, reproducibility, and linearity utilizing a gradient pump. The mobile phase consists of 50mM sodium dihydrogen phosphate with 0.5mM tetrabutylammonium chloride, the pH is adjusted to 4.1, methanol is added to the final ratio of 90:10 (v/v), the flow rate is set at 1 mL/min, and separation is achieved with an ODS2 Luna column. The UV detector is set at 254 nm. IOX and PAH are used for evaluation of the effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The present method tested in three dogs demonstrates the accuracy in the evaluation of ERPF and GFR. Because of its precision and simplicity and low cost, it can be considered a good tool for ERPF and GFR in small animal practice.
