Katkor, the copolymer cat litter, is suitable for the simple collection of urine and stool samples from cats. It is easy to use, does not change the composition of the urine and allows for high-quality, laboratory diagnostic examinations.
Each bag of Katkor comes with a pipette and a slim vessel for easy urine collection.
If the examination is urgent and the cat stubbornly refuses to use a litter tray filled with Katkor, the tray can be filled with Katkor and as little of its usual litter as possible, if absolutely necessary. You should ensure that the different types of litter do not get mixed before the cat enters the litter tray. With a bit of luck, there will still be some urine to suck up. However, this method is only to be used in an emergency and is in no way recommended, as it is uncertain whether the urine is altered by the brief contact with the regular litter, or if it will be soaked up completely.
No, Katkor is a disposable aid for the collection of urine samples and should be disposed of after a single use. Detergent remnants and other build-ups on the individual balls may distort the urine test results.
The filling amount depends on the size of the litter tray, as well as the cat and its preferences. However, as cats would rather urinate in a litter tray that doesn't meet their expectations than another place in the room, the litter tray doesn't need to be filled to the normal level. It should be enough for the cat to have a thin base for scraping.
