Pets may not speak, but they do communicate with us every day. The better we are at communicating with our pets, the better we can care for them. When your pet isn’t feeling well, there are always signs – but sometimes these signs are more subtle and we second-guess ourselves on when it’s the right time to see a vet. And when we do that… we worry the entire time we’re waiting for more signs until it’s “appropriate” to go to the vet. You’ve probably been there, and it’s not fun. But here’s a solution to help ease your worried mind: a Pet-nostics Kit, or a basic at-home pet health care test.

If you can’t quite read your pet’s subtle clues, the Petnostics Kit – a basic at-home pet health care test – can give you peace of mind.

At-home urine test for pets

Testing your pet’s urine can give you great insight into the health of your pet. That being said, it is not a replacement for proper veterinarian care. When a pet is in the very early stages of an illness, they may be showing subtle signs or just acting a little different than usual. Changes in their behavior can be caused by many things, and running to the vet every time your pet is a little “off” may stress them out more. You also don’t want to ignore subtle cues that something is wrong and missing out on early treatment. The Petnostics Kit is an at-home urine test that will allow you to make an informed decision about the best way to proceed, preferably in consultation with a veterinarian.

When to use a Petnostics Kit

Sometimes your pet will do something that they’ve never done before. Oftentimes, we shrug off little odd behaviors as “one-offs” because everything else seems normal. Your pet may pee in the house, but otherwise, act happy and healthy. You could be right, maybe it’s just a one-time thing. Maybe they’re punishing you for coming home late, or other lifestyle changes in the family. It could also be the beginning of something more serious. A Petnostics Kit is for those times when your parental instincts are tingling, but you’re not quite sure if you should go to the vet. The results of the test will determine whether you should take further action, or if your pet is just having a bad day.

Understanding pet urine test results

The free app can help you understand the results of your Petnostics at-home urine test.

A Petnostics app will help you understand the pet urine test results and whether you have a reason to be concerned. However, the urine test is just one piece of the puzzle. To fully understand pet urine test results, you need to look at the big picture. If you get an abnormal pet urine test result, the Petnostics app can give you a few reasons why, but you should consult a veterinarian who can complete the picture. Once you have a complete understanding of your pet’s health you can come up with the right treatment moving forward.

Early treatment

The sooner you catch a health issue with your pet, the sooner you can start treatment. Early treatment is often more affordable and more successful. The sooner you get treatment for your pet, the better the chances of a full recovery. The at-home pet urine test can give you valuable information about your pet’s body, and allow you to determine if more serious veterinarian care or holistic treatments are necessary.
