Once your cat has urinated in the tray use the pipette provided to collect a sample and place it into the container provided. Catheterization causes mild irritation to the urethra, and may carry bacteria from the urethra into the bladder.The presence of both bacteria and inflammatory cells in the sediment indicates there is likely bacterial infection somewhere in the urinary system. Hemoglobin passes into the urine and causes the blood test pad to show positive, even though there is no actual bleeding in the urinary system.

Thanks to the Catrine Pearl urine collection kit, collecting your cat’s urine has been made as simple as possible and can be done at home, with subjecting your cat to undue stress. The disadvantages of cystocentesis are that the method is slightly more invasive than other methods, is useful only if the pet’s bladder is full, and it is difficult to do in patients that are uncooperative.Small numbers of red blood cells are often found in urine collected by cystocentesis or catheterization, but large numbers of red blood cells usually indicate bleeding. Urine that is any color other than yellow (for example orange, red, brown or black) may contain substances not normally found in healthy urine and may reflect injury orunderlying disease. If there is an excess of water in the body, then the kidneys allow the excess water to pass out in the urine, and the urine becomes more watery or dilute.

The dipstick is dipped into the urine, and after a short waiting period, the color of the test pads is compared to a chart that translates the intensity of the color to an actual measurement. Blood in the urine is associated with diseases such as bacterial infection, bladder stones, trauma, or cancer, so if blood in the urine does not appear to be due to the sampling method, further investigation is recommended.
