In comparison to pure water loss, hypotonic fluid loss stimulates a less dramatic fluid shifting from the ICF to the ECF in order to re‐establish equilibrium. As a result, these patients frequently present with a degree of hypovolemia. Hypervolemic hypernatremia is the least common cause of hypernatremia in veterinary medicine and is seen when sodium, or other impermeant solutes, is gained (Mazzaferro 2013). g. ingestion of homemade salt, playdough, or the use of salt as an emetic) or the addition of an alternate impermeant solute—such as mannitol, glucose, or sodium bicarbonate—to the ECF.
