We recently added to our in house laboratory, and can now provide reference lab quality urine results in-house, in less than 3 minutes! To celebrate, we are offering 1/2 off all drop off urine sample ($22 savings!) ALL DAY on April 12th!
Dogs: Free catch samples are usually best caught first thing in the morning, when your pet really has to go! Paper plates or ladles work well as collection devices, and we have free urine sample cups to put the sample in.
Cats: Special litter can be picked up from the clinic (or online, and there is a cost for the litter) to make urine collection a cinch. Just clean out your litter box, put the special litter in, and keep your cat confined for a couple of hours or overnight with food and water. The sample is collected via pipette and transferred to a collection tube to be dropped off at the clinic.
Urine tells us a lot about a pet's health, from their diabetic status, to how well their kidneys are functioning, to how well hydrated they are, and so much more. We often are able to diagnose a urinary tract infection off of our senior labwork submissions before the pet is symptomatic (i.e. having urinary accidents on your carpet!). Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy, and urine screening is just one of the many ways we do that. Doctors will call with results and discuss anything amiss within 48 hours.
