HEALTH INDICATOR® can alert you to many potential health problems including cystitis, bladder stones, urethral plugs, and bladder infections.
Once a month, after refilling your cat's litter box, spread the entire contents of this bag HEALTH INDICATOR® evenly across the top of the litter.
A short moment after your cat uses the litter box, compare the color of the crystals at the urination spot to the colors on the chart. The normal color, when urine is added to the litter, is light to dark yellow. Should any other color become visible, immediately contact your vet (abnormally discolored litter should be removed with a plastic cup, or spoon).
After completing the test, stir the HEALTH INDICATOR® into the regular litter where it will help eliminate odors.
Homes with multiple cats should separate the cats so that each cat has its' own litter box with HEALTH INDICATOR®.
lf your cat typically digs prior to urinating, empty litter box and spread contents of HEALTH INDICATOR® evenly across the litter box. After completing the test, refill the box with regular litter.
A life threatening condition occurs when a cat cannot urinate. The complete blockage of their urethra (tubular passage from the bladder) can be caused by a small bladder stone, crystalluria, or a tumor.
lf you see that your cat is distressed, it is critical for you to contact your veterinarian even if the HEALTH INDICATOR® has not shown any abnormal colors. Familiarize yourself with the common signs of feline illnesses and monitor your cat daily.
HEALTH INDICATOR® is NOT for "at home diagnosis" and should NEVER be used as a substitute for veterinary care! If you feel your cat is having health or urinary problems but the litter does not change color, CONTACT YOUR VETERINARIAN. HEALTH INDICATOR® cannot detect every urinary abnormality. Only your vet will be able to undertake such a diagnosis.
Cat faeces can transmit a disease called toxoplasmosis. Pregnant, nursing, or persons with a suppressed immune system should use caution & thoroughly wash hands after handling soiled litter.
