A urine glucose test is indicated for evaluating pets with signs consistent with diabetes mellitus such as excessive drinking, excessive urination, weight loss, vomiting, and lethargy. It may also be indicated on pets with urinary abnormalities such as increased urine production, increased urinary frequency, or abnormal colour to the urine.
This test can also be helpful in cases of symptoms in a search for diabetes mellitus. A urine glucose test may be recommended by your vet to monitor therapy of patients being treated with diabetes.
There is no real contraindication to performing this test. Even normal results help determine health or exclude certain diseases.
Throughout November we are offering FREE tests to our cat and dog clients!
