Give kitty time to give you a sample in box. Check often, to make sure you get fresh cat urine. Why? Fresh cat urine will give you most accurate pH reading. The older urine, higher pH reading will be...you'll think kitty has a problem, when she may not.
Dip urine pH test strip into kitty's urine, and GENTLY shake excess off, over cat litter box. Hold wet end up, and compare it to chart that comes with urine pH test strip kit.
A normal reading is 6.4 - 6.6. If it's any lower or higher, please contact your vet as soon as possible for more information.
I test my cat Scout monthly. Since I've begun using this method, I no longer have to guess if changes in her diet and lifestyle are working to prevent future UTI occurences. I know for certain, based on urine sample test reading.
What could be easier? You:
- Can test kitty at home, at your leisure, and hers.
- Don't have to schedule a vet visit.
- Can easily read test results quickly.
- Will know if an appointment with kitty's vet is necessary or not.
Remember, this testing will tell you that a recurring UTI is possible - it's NOT definitive. For confirmation, you will need to take your cat vet.
Good luck, and happy testing!
