CHECKUP KIT for Cats provides a quick, simple, and reliable testing method to observe the general wellness of cats through at-home urine testing.

Plant-based diets tend to make the urine more alkaline and this must be monitored.
Urine pH must be kept in the range of 6.0-6.5 to avoid formation of crystals and painful urinary tract obstruction.

We recommend measuring the pH of urine prior to the transition to a plant-based diet (to establish the baseline for comparison) and then 1 month after the transition (to see what effect the new diet has on the pH).

In addition to monitoring the pH of urine, CheckUp can detect the most common issues among domestic cats including high glucose levelskidney failureurinary tract infection (UTI), and blood in the urine. By using CheckUp, you can detect a health condition in time to prevent health deterioration and improve your cat’s lifespan.

BENEFITS:

  • On-the-spot test results for 4 conditions
  • Recommended by top veterinarian
  • 60-second testing
  • Obtain a clean, uncontaminated sample
  • Ideal for aging & overweight pets
  • Noninvasive and stress-free
  • 100% natural and non-toxic
  • Easy to use 
  • Biodegradable & recyclable

COMPLIANCE FROM CATS:

Sand is the natural environment for cats, allowing our product to yield quick compliance. The hydrophobic sand feels and smells just like regular sand, so cats are very cooperative when sample collection is required.

 INSIDE THE KIT:

  • 2 identical testing strips
  • 1 sample collection vial
  • 1 sample collection pipette
  • 2 lbs (900 g) hydrophobic litter

HOW TO USE:

Pour all hydrophobic litter into a clean and empty litter box. Allow your cat to urinate freely on the hydrophobic litter. Collect urine from the top of the sand with the pipette. Fill the vial at least 3/4 way using the pipette. Simply dip the strip into the vial and make sure all squares are submerged. Quickly place the strip next to the Results card and follow the instructions underneath the table. If necessary, close the vial with the cap and keep it in the refrigerator. If the test shows any positive result, take the sample to your vet for further testing.

RECOMMENDATION:

We recommend measuring the pH of urine prior to the transition to a plant-based diet (to establish the baseline for comparison) and then 1 month after the transition (to see what effect the new diet has on the pH).

We also recommend checking the pH of urine every 2-3 months after that.

    Transition Tips

    Gradual transition is the key to a successful transition.

    Start by mixing 1 part of new food and 4 parts of old food.

    During the next 2 weeks, gradually increase the amount of new food to 100%.

    Older pets and picky eaters may need longer time and extra care to completely switch.

    Digestive Enzymes can be used to harden up stool during transition.

    Nutritional Yeast has a cheesy flavour, which cats and dogs love.

    Hydration

    Provide ample water to cats and dogs, and especially male cats due to their urinary anatomy.

    Water aids with digestion and helps to avoid urinary issues. Water flushes out pathogens, heavy metals, and harmful drugs. 

    Soak dry kibble in water to make moist food with 1:1 ratio (1 part kibble to 1 part water), and wait for at least 30 min before serving.

    Use distilled water whenever possible.

    Incorporate wet canned food for better hydration. Mix wet food with dry kibble to increase moisture level.

    Use an electric water fountain to entice pets to drink more water.

    Care Instructions

    Store in a dark, cool place, tightly sealed.

    For canned food: after opening, remove remaining leftovers and put into an airtight container for up to 3 days, keep it in the fridge. It can also be portioned out and frozen for later use or served as a frosty treat!

    Brush your furry friends' teeth regularly.

    Offer dental treats after moist food or add several dry kibbles to help scrape off the plague.
