The objective of this study was to estimate the glomerular filtration rates of normal dogs using the clearance of endogenous creatinine, and comparing it to the clearance of exogenous creatinine. Nine healthy dogs, of both sexes, were used in this study. The results showed a significant relationship, with a correlation coefficient = 0.714 (p<0.05). The regression line was an endogenous creatinine clearance = (-0.803 + 0.677) x exogenous creatinine clearance. The use of endogenous creatinine clearance is a simple and convenient method without the need to administer any substances and can be used to evaluate renal function in clinical practice.
