PawCheck

A urinalysis is a simple urine test to assess your cat’s overall urinary tract (kidneys and bladder) health, liver function and screen for other metabolic diseases such as diabetes. Veterinarians recommend a yearly urinalysis for middle-aged pets of eight years or older. In addition, if you observe the following symptoms on your pet: excessive water consumption, increased frequency in urination, pain on voiding, then a urinalysis is indicated.

PawCheck® is a home-test for the detection of Urinary Tract Infection, Diabetes or Kidney Failure. The testkit includes non-absorbent cat litter for a clean and non-invasive collection of urine, offering owners a complete solution to care for their cats. It should go without saying that a positive test will require a veterinary visit to properly diagnose and treat the problem.

68 Comments on Giveaway: PawCheck At Home Kidney Failure Test Kit

  1. I’m a believer in getting regular urine tests for my three cats. I use a specimen cup and collect the urine with the lid. When one of my boys squats in the box, I scratch the base of his tail and he lifts up a bit. I slide the lid under him and collect the sample. I usually get it midstream.

  2. Although my cats are young and healthy I have a couple of friends who’s cats would benefit from having this test on hand. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Although these seem to be very similar to regular urinalysis strips, which I used with my cat, Thomas. Only these have only one test where you can get a bottle of 100 strips that test for 10 different things for the same price.

  3. I have lost 2 kitties to kidney failure, one undiagnosed until he passed away. After having gone thru the IV therapy with the first, early screening for this would be a welcome plus.

  4. Interesting pin on Pinterest about this wonderful giveaway. Live long and prosper little kitty. =^..^=

  5. I feel that it is best to check these things out if possible, as always best to catch issues while they are early, especially after hearing of one of my friends cats passing away due to such :/

  6. My cat Riley was diagnosed with diabetes at age 7. He is on a high dose of twice daily insulin injections and a special diet. Now he is 10 years young and showing early signs of kidney problems. Going to the vet stresses him out more than any other cat we’ve had so home monitoring is really important. I have a kit to monitor his blood sugar levels and this would be a great tool to monitor his kidney function. Thanks for sharing this information. Even if I don’t win I am excited about this product. Can’t wait for it to get on the market in Canada.

  7. I don’t see how this can accurately screen for anything but diabetes. Just because a pet has blood in the urine (these kinds of test are okay at looking for) or white blood cells (these test are not typically good at) doesn’t mean there is bacteria – in fact usually in cats there isn’t a primary bacterial infection. Also these kinds of tests are notoriously poor at checking for urine concentration – the most important thing to look at for early kidney failure. Personally this seems like a scam and like a lot of people are going to get confused about what is really going on with their cat…
