PAL-DOG & CAT Urine Specific Gravity Refractometer

The ATAGO Cat & Dog Urine Specific Gravity Refractometer is a specialised veterinary device designed to accurately measure dog and cat urine specific gravity. This handheld refractometer is easy to use. Providing quick and precise results that are crucial for veterinarians and pet owners alike. Its portability makes it an excellent tool for both clinical environments and at-home use. Allows for immediate assessment of a pet’s kidney function, hydration status, and overall health. The device’s accuracy and reliability ensure that health issues can be detected early and managed effectively. Ultimately improving the quality of care for cats and dogs.

Cats and dogs need urine specific gravity tests for several important reasons. These tests help evaluate kidney function by determining how well the kidneys are concentrating urine. High USG values indicate effective concentration, whereas low values suggest potential kidney problems. USG also helps assess a pet’s hydration status, with high values indicating dehydration and low values potentially pointing to overhydration or an inability to concentrate urine properly. Additionally, measuring USG aids in diagnosing diseases such as kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, and urinary tract infections, which can significantly affect a pet’s health. Regular USG checks are vital for monitoring treatment effectiveness and ensuring optimal care, making urine specific gravity tests an essential part of health management for both cats and dogs.
