Ketone Strips

Ketone Strips

Ketone Test Strips provide a quick, accurate way to test for ketosis in
animals. When exposed to ketones in urine, the test pad reacts and
changes color. The test strip may then be compared to the color chart on
the bottle to identify ketone levels.

Sample preparation:
•Put the urine specimen into a urine collection cup or clean container
•Immerse the reagent pad area of the strip in the urine specimen and
withdraw immediately. Remove excess urine by brushing strip against the
rim of the specimen container
•Hold the strip(s) horizontally. Read test results after 40 second, then
compare the test area with the color chart on the bottle
•Record results immediately
•If unexpected or abnormal results are observed, re-read instructions
and retest
