Cellular dehydration) created by a given solute, which would depend on the permeability characteristics unique to the osmoreceptor cell membrane. Cellular dehydration occurs when extracellular fluid osmolality is increased by a solute that cannot penetrate cell membranes. This causes water to be withdrawn from cells in an effort to equilibrate the osmotic gradient that is formed. Cellular dehydration, in turn, provides the signal for secretion of vasopressin and consumption of water. Studies indicate that an important role is also played by the blood-brain barrier, again suggesting unique permeability characteristics.

This list includes agents that either stimulate or inhibit AVP secretion, as well as substances that potentiate or inhibit the renal tubular response to AVP (Table 1-2; see Fig 1-4; Reeves et al, 1998).

These animals often have dramatic elevations in BUN, which results from the obstruction and creates a marked osmotic diuresis once the obstruction is relieved. Postobstructive diuresis is self-limiting. The veterinarian, however, must be aware of this problem and maintain the animal’s hydration through aggressive fluid therapy, which can be slowly decreased over several days as the uremia clears and the osmotic diuresis declines. Vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone) deficiency Partial or complete lack of vasopressin production by the neurosecretory cells located in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei in the hypothalamus is called central diabetes insipidus (CDI).
