Abstract

1. 1. The renal creatinine handling of the camels (Camelus dromedarius) was examined when the animals were hydrated, dehydrated and rehydrated. 2. 2. A rise in the creatinine and inulin clearance ratios was found following dehydration and a decrease following rehydration. 3. 3. When exposed to heat and also when dehydrated, the camels had gross changes in renal creatinine handling with a tendency to tubular secretion. 4. 4. It is concluded that endogenous creatinine determinations are no measure of glomerular filtration rate in the camel.
