Tilbage til testoversigten

The incidence of urinary tract infections (UTI) is higher among dogs than cats and is reported very differently in the literature. The diagnosis of UTI is made by demonstrating bacteria in the urine (bacteriuria).

If a dog or cat presents with one or more of the symptoms frequent urination, painful urination, malodorous or cloudy urine, hematuria, and uropathogens are detected in a concentration of > 10E3 CFU/ml (colony forming units per ml) in an urine sample collected by cystocentesis, then there is indication of an urinary tract infection.

  • Direct replacement for urine culture
  • Urine sample (cystocentesis, catheter, clean catch)
  • Test for bacteriuria down to 1000 CFU / ml
  • Results in < 20 minutes
  • Storage at room temperature (15–25 °C)
  • Shelf life: 18 months
  • Dog: Sensitivity 97.4 % & Specificity 98.8 %
