Name three functions of the urinary system
remove waste products from the blood, regulate the composition of the blood, and produce regulatory enzymes
Name two regulatory enzymes produced by the urinary system
renin and erythropoietin
Name the anatomical components of the urinary system
two kidneys, two ureters, the urinary bladder, and the urethra
The (left/right) kidney is cranial in domestic animals
right
[True/False] The renal vein that exits the kidney leads to the superior vena cavae
false, inferior vena cavae
The kidneys lie (inside/outside) the peritoneum
outside (lie retroperitoneally)

vestibule
In males the urethra opens into the penis and becomes one with the ___ _____
vas deferens

right
___ refers to part of kidney tissue
renal
The kidneys contain branching of the renal ____ and the renal veins
arteries
The renal ___ lies on the outside of the kidney while the renal ____ lies on the inside
cortex (outside), medulla (inside)
What is the functional unit of filtration in the kidney
nephron
The renal pelvis is the location where _____ collects and it becomes the ureter
urine
The depression/indentation in the kidney where the ureter, renal arteries, and renal veins enter is called the ____
hilus

nephron
Pig kidneys contain lobes on the (inside/outside)
inside
Cattle kidneys structure has lobes on the (inside/outside)
outside
Cats and dogs have no distinctive _____/_____ but have a large and defined pelvis
renal pyramid/renal column
The number of _____ varies between species
nephrons
What are the two types of nephrons
cortical nephrons and medullary nephrons
List the components of a nephron
renal corpuscule (glomerulus + Bowman’s capsule),proximal convoluted tubule, descending limb, loop of Henle, ascending limb, distal convoluted tubule, collecting tubules/ducts (calyxes)
The glomerulus is a ____ tuft that has high blood pressure in order to drive water and ____ out of the blood
capillary, solutes
The glomerulus has an afferent arteriole and an _____ arteriole
efferent
The ______ ______ collects fluids from the glomerulus
Bowman’s capsule
The main function of the renal tubules is _____
reabsorption
The proximal convoluted tubule (PCT) reabsorbs water, salt, glucose, and ____ ____
amino acids
The _____ loop of Henle is impermeable to water but actively pumps Na out while the _____ loop of Henle is permeable to water but impermeable to salt
ascending, descending
The distal convoluted tubule actions depend on hormones and it actively transports ____ against the gradient
ions
The collecting tubule and the collecting duct are controlled by ___
ADH
The reabsorbed components go right back into _____
circulation (the blood)
_____ is the presence of blood in the urine
hematuria
____ is the presence of protein in the urine
proteinuria
The ureters are narrow muscular tubes which run caudally towards the ____
bladder
The urine formed by the nephrons leaves the kidney through a single ureter at the ____
hilus
Urine is pushed along the tube by _____ waves
peristaltic
The ureters are made of _____ epithelium which allows for expansion
transitional
The urinary bladder is a ____ smooth muscle made up of transitional epithelium
hollow
_____ is the expulsion of urine from the bladder controlled by the urethralis muscle
micturition

oblique
The urethra is shared with the urinary and the ____ system
reproductive
The ______ conveys urine from the bladder to the outside through the pelvic cavity
urethra
