Regular home urine testing helps dog with recurring Urinary Tract Infections

“I am delighted to give a review on ThePetCheckup!! Our Whippet Fiona was continually getting UTI’s. The Vet said it could partially be due to her having such a tiny bladder.

I have taken her back for her shots, and told them about ThePetCheckup. They said it’s just like what they use in their office. They were glad to know that we are keeping a check on her so we can catch a problem early, should it arise again. If we have any doubts, like thinking her urine looks a little dark, or any kinds of questionable signs, we go ahead and do another test, even if it hasn’t been a month.

So far, she has not had any more problems in relation to a UTI, but it gives us such peace of mind to be able to check it ourselves. PLUS, it has saved us a lot of money by not taking her to the Vet every time we wonder if there is a problem. We order refills every time we get close to the end of the kit and we plan to do so for as long as we have our dog.

I highly recommend ThePetCheckup to anyone who has pets with problems or just plain cares about their pet to get yourself a kit. It doesn’t have to be just for UTI problems, because it screens for many other diseases as well. It’s well worth it to find out in advance if your pet is developing a health issue that you can catch early and get them the care they need.

It’s reasonably priced and easy to do!! Thank you ThePetCheckup for giving us the resources to keep such a close watch on Fiona!” fiona

More info on the new iOS method to test your pet’s urine

A customer asked us today if the urine cups for the iOS home test version are reusable.

Technically, they are. But each cup comes with a test strip embedded in the lid, so you do need to use a new test each time. The cup and test strip/lid come packaged together in each test.

Please let us know if you have any other questions regarding the new product. It’s wonderful to be able to offer 2 versions now of our early detection test for dogs and cats.

Early detection is the best medicine for happy and healthy dogs and cats

With ThePetCheckup, when we talk about “early detection” we are really talking about catching potential problems before there are any outward signs of illness.

Even the most attentive and caring pet owner usually will not know anything is wrong with their dog or cat until they are showing visible changes in behavior or appearance.

That is the beauty of this home urine test for pets – providing an easy to use tool that gives owners a way to be more pro-active in caring for their animal’s health.  When something shows up on ThePetCheckup health screen as abnormal, it means they will receive veterinary care at an earlier point in the illness.

This is such a great product. Being a trainer / behaviorist and rescue person I am always thrilled when a product is available that can mean a world of good for the pets and the people they love. ThePetCheckup gives me the info to make decisions on what to talk to my vet about and where my dog’s health is. Its so easy to use. I will be recommending this product to everyone I know.

Practicing preventative health care with our dogs and cats

One of the great perks about being the owner of a company that sells a preventative health care product for pets is that I get to speak with lots of wonderful people about their dogs and cats.

Our customers tend to be people who share a deep bond with their animal companions. They practice preventative health care and understand the importance of early detection. It is always fun and also illuminating to share different ideas and products that we have found helpful in protecting our animals’ health. I have a bond with so many people throughout the world now who share many of the same values and goals for animals as I do.
