Inside of the cup, there are 4 reacting test stripes on each side. When urine gets in contact with the test stripes they cause a chemical reaction. The amount of tracks inside the urine lead to the color on each different indicator. Within 60 seconds the result can be interpreted. The test stripes work like normal pH tests, were tested and proven million times and are used day to day in vet offices and clinics all over the world.
It is recommended to check the health of your dog approximately 3 times a year on a regular basis. The PEZZ HealthCheck should be carried out in addition to veterinary check-ups, as it does not substitute a veterinarian.
The urine strip we use in our HealthCheck is the same strip used by veterinarians. It tests 8 different parameters presented in the urine that can give insights into your pet’s overall health status. These parameters include Blood, Glucose, Ketones, Leukocytes, Nitrite, pH, Protein and Urobilinogen.
Urine testing can help to identify up to 20 diseases like e.g. diabetes, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, dehydration, proteinuria, liver disease, ketonuria, anemia or bacterial infections.
The health check expires after a time lap of around 24 months in a normal and unopened condition.
Yes, the whole test is disposable. About 85% of our HealthCheck are made out of biodegradable materials in order to leave a minimal ecological footprint.
As we use the same test strips as veterinarians, the accuracy of the results are similar to those obtained at a vet office. Please keep in mind that our health check is not intended to diagnose, as it is a screening method. If you have any questions or concerns about your results please contact your vet.
Yes, it is totally free of charge. As it is important for the analysing process, make sure you have the app downloaded before you test your pet’s urine. In order to have access to your dog’s health history and to get the explained version you have to be logged in.
The app makes the conducting much easier. It provides an automatic evaluation of all parameters. Moreover, it gives you the possibility of screening and saving your dog’s data and health status on your mobile phone and thereby makes it permanently available. Our App can even be adapted to your dog: Just type in your dog’s data like age, sex and breed. Each dog has its individual character, which we want to take into account.
Yes, don’t worry if you don’t have a smartphone. An evaluation card comes with every item.
When certain light conditions (shadow, glare, etc.) keep the app from scanning, you have to interpret the result manually with the evaluation card that comes with every item. You can easily transfer those results into your dog’s history.
Since the test fields are time sensitive (colors continue to develop over time), it is meant to be scanned 60 seconds after the test fields comes in contact with the urine. There is a built-in timer in the app that will count down the 60 seconds for you.
Yes, they are available for both. Each can be found in its respective store (App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices).
Approximately 5ml are needed to guarantee a valid reaction of the test fields. That’s about half a tablespoon.
We recommend collecting the urine when going for the first walk in the morning. (There is the best chance to get the urine within a few minutes.)
No, the health check is just a screening tool. We try to support the vet. For getting a complete diagnose and interpretation of the test parameters a vet is indispensable.
