If you follow me on Diabetic Outlet blog you should have seen my post from last week announcing the addition of Advocate PetTest Insulin Syringes to our store.
Today I am here to announce the addition of yet another great pet product from Advocate PetTest – that’s the new Advocate PetTest Ketone and Glucose Reagent Strips for Urinalysis.
PetTest Ketone & Glucose Strips
In this blog we are going to explore the features and benefits of the Advocate PetTest Ketone and Glucose Reagent Strips. By the end of this post you will see what makes PetTest our number one choice for measurement of ketone and glucose in your diabetic cats and dogs. Lastly, you can take advantage of our special discount to get these strips for your pets.
The Advocate PetTest ketone glucose reagent strips are used to accurately and quickly test your pet’s urine to determine their glucose and ketone levels. It also helps determine whether your animal may have urinary tract infection (UTI), diabetes, and more.
You can obtain a glucose reading in as fast as 30 seconds and a ketone reading in 40 seconds. Testing for ketones in the blood allows you to monitor the amount of acid in the blood.

If your pet is not feeling as good as normal there is a good chance they have Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), kidney failure, or diabetes. Some of the common signs include but are not limited to:
- Frequent urination
- Pain and discomfort while urinating
- Cloudy or bloody urine
- Urine leakage
- Unquenchable thirst
- Accidents or licking of genitals
If you notice any of these symptoms you should run a urine test to determine whether or not your pet have one of the above problems. DO NOT FORGET TO CONSULT WITH YOUR VET!
It’s also noteworthy to mention PetTest Cranberry D-mannose, a dietary supplement for the prevention of urinary tract infections (UITs) in pets. D-mannose is also highly recommended for diabetic pets because it does not boost blood glucose even though it has a high sugar content.
Testing for ketone and glucose in urine is really easy with PetTest reagent strips. Simply collect a urine sample, dip the strip and match the color of the strip to the colors on the PetTest chart. It’s crucial that you read the strip at the exact seconds on the chart.
Here are some possible ketone scenarios:
- PetTest reagent strip registers Trace. Most vets would tell you to promote water consumption.
- The strip registers Small to Moderate. Vets would recommend bringing your pet for fluid injections.
- The strip registers Large. Take your pet in immediately. This is most likely Diabetes Ketoacidosis.
A buildup of ketone bodies in the liver can cause the pH balance to shift and to become more acidic. Testing for glucose in the urine will help prevent bacterial growth and avoid urinary tract infections. The Pest Ketone & Glucose Reagent Strips make it easier than ever to heck your pet’s health by detecting specific values of Ketones and Glucose in their urine at home.
