Presence of Leukocytes and Nitrite in urine is a strong indication of a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in pet dogs and cats. Leukocytes refer to white blood cells. When present in urine at higher than normal concentration, they indicate an immune response (likely) due to an infection. Nitrite are chemicals that are produced by the pathogenic bacteria living in the urinary tract.
Petnox-10 urine test strips can test for both Leukocytes and Nitrite in the pet's urine.
Urinalysis strip (dipstick) is a narrow plastic strip which has several square-shaped pads of different colors attached to it. Each small pad represents a component of the test used to interpret urinalysis. When dipped in the urine, pad colors change in response to the chemical characteristics of the urine. The color changes are noted at specific time intervals and compared against the reference color chart/key.
