At one time the former Miles Diagnostics, former Ames Company - now Bayer
Diagnostics, had publications that gave normal and abnormal ranges for
multispecies urine components.  This was provided for veterinary use of their
"dip stick" urinalysis reagent strips (i.e.: "Multistix 10 SG").  I am not
if you need to do quantitative or qualitative urinalysis, but a call to Bayer
may be of help.  They also have reflectance photometer instrumentation
100/200, etc.) that reads their reagent strips more accurately than the human
eye, but once again - this is for qualitative analysis.  There are a number of
quantitative methods available that can be found in most any Clinical Chemistry
text book and at your local College of Veterinary Medicine Library.  I can give
references if needed.

Bayer Diagnostics phone number is (800) 348-8100
connect with the Urine Chemistry Customer Service Department, and they can
