If you have been a reader of MoscatoMom long, you know that our pets pretty much rule our house – and just allow us to live here. It is true, our furbabies reign supreme around here, and we would not have it any other way. Sadly we have had a few of our babies cross the Rainbow Bridge in the last few years, which has made us extra aware of just how precious our time is with these guys. With The Teen now interning as a Veterinary Tech and learning about common and not so common illnesses, I find myself wondering often if a trip to the vet is necessary. So when I learned about the new Vet Approved CheckUp At Home Wellness Tests for Dogs and Cats, I was excited to check it out.
Just like with humans, dogs and cats can get minor illnesses that while it makes them feel lousy – is not really dangerous at all – kind of like a cold. On the other hand, more serious illnesses can go undetected, since many do not have outward symptoms – also like in humans. The CheckUp At Home Wellness Tests allow you to quickly test your pet for common conditions like high glucose levels, kidney failure, and urinary tract infections which can lead to very serious problems if not treated. Simply put, by using CheckUp, you can detect a health condition in time to get the treatment that your furbaby needs before further deterioration occurs.
Each Kit comes complete with everything you need, as well as instructions – although the testing is super simple. You simply collect a urine specimen from your pet and test with diagnostic testing strips which change color to indicate any problems your pet may be experiencing. From the results, you can then decide whether or not you need to take your furbaby to the veterinarian or not! It is that simple!
You want your furbabies around for as long as possible – so make sure you “CheckUp” on them often to make sure they are in the best of health. You can get your CheckUp Kits to have on hand at http://checkupkit.com/ and be sure to also check out their blog and Facebook Page which has tons of information for how to keep your dogs and cats healthy and happy for a long, long time.
