CheckUp Home Wellness Kits and Tests Help Keep Your Cat's Health in Check
Astro Bug/10162553

NEW YORK - AstroBug -- Cat parents know that wellness visits are essential to their cat's health and wellbeing. The CheckUp Kits provide a quick, simple, and reliable testing method to observe the general wellness of your cat through at-home urine testing. At times, it can be a struggle to get a cat to a vet for a quick checkup. The CheckUp testing kits can assist cat owners in being proactive in their cat's health without resorting to painful, invasive, or messy procedures.

Cats can be especially susceptible to kidney issues and CheckUp testing kits can detect common conditions among domestic cats such as high protein content in the urine, which can be an early sign for kidney conditions. Kidney issues are not the only ones that CheckUp products can aid in the detection of - urinary tract infections, as well as blood in the urine, and high glucose levels (diabetes).

Collecting a cat urine sample can be very problematic. Currently the common collection methods such as Cystocentesis are invasive, painful, and expensive. Cystocentesis involves the use of an ultrasound in order to locate the urine and a needle to extract it directly from the bladder. The procedure of Cystocentesis increases a risk of infection, stress, and possible blood in the urine from the procedure. The other procedure is catheterization, which is invasive and involves inserting a catheter into the cat. Besides being painful and stressful for your cat, these urinalysis procedures at the veterinarian have an average price range from $120 to $180.

The CheckUp Kit includes a unique hydrophobic litter called "Kit4Cat" litter. The "litter" smells and feels like regular sand with a natural non-toxic repellent coating. It allows cat parents to collect a urine sample easily and passively without resorting to painful invasive procedures like Cystocentesis. The kit comes with everything you need to collect a urine sample. The vial of collected urine may be submitted to your vet as soon as possible or refrigerated for up to 48 hours before submission. The Kit4Cat litter can also be purchased separately from The CheckUp Kit.
