Urinary Tract Infection (also called UTI) is usually caused by intestinal or environmental bacteria that enter and ascend the urethra, ultimately proliferating in the urinary bladder.
The following symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection in Dogs and Cats can be observed:
- Frequent urination
- Straining or crying out in pain when trying to pass urine
- Inappropriate urination in places that are not customary
- Urine has strong odor
However, affected pets might show no clinical signs, and if the infection is not detected early,
it can spread to the kidney and lead to more serious health conditions requiring surgery.
The PawCheck® Urinary Tract Infection Test detects the following parameters in animal urine: Blood, Leukocytes, also known as white blood cells, and Nitrite, which are indicators of urinary tract pathology. A positive result requires veterinary care.
The PawCheck® Urinary Tract Infection Test is a unique device adapted for home-use. Unlike conventional test strips that can expose users to the chemical reagents, the PawCheck® system is fully enclosed and offers a very safe, easy and clean handling for pet parents eager to take charge of their pets’ healthcare.
