Collection and Handling of Urine Samples


 When you are asked to collect a urine sample for your pet it is very important for it to be handled correctly. The following guidelines should be adhered to so that a quality sample is submitted. This will help us deliver an accurate analysis and therefore an accurate diagnosis.

  1. Early morning samples are best
  2. Collection and storage containers should be washed with mild soapy water, rinsed and dried well
  3. Storage containers should be tightly capped and refrigerated after collection
  4. Best results are obtained when samples are submitted within 2 hours of collection

 

"Collection kits” (and instructions) for cats are available from our clinic.
