Title
(EN) FELINE URINARY TRACT DISEASE-DETECTING PAPER CAT LITTER AND METHOD
(FR) LITIERE EN PAPIER DETECTANT LES MALADIES DES VOIES URINAIRES CHEZ LE CHAT ET PROCEDE ASSOCIE
Abstract
(EN)
A cat litter (10) which comprises a plurality of lightweight, resilient paper strips treated with a pH-indicator and/or an occult blood indicator and folded transversely into generally zig-zag shapes, enables early detection of feline urological syndrome. When wetted with alkaline urine secreted by the cat, the paper strips treated with pH indicator exhibit a noticeable color change. When wetted with cat urine containing occult or gross blood, the paper strips treated with occult blood indicator exhibit a noticeable color change. A mixture of pH indicator treated strips and occult blood indicator strips in the cat litter enables the detection of both alkaline pH and occult blood in the same urine sample. The color changes are easily visible to the observer without requiring unsanitary contact with the cat litter.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une litière pour chat (10), constituée de plusieurs bandes légères et élastiques de papier, traitées avec un indicateur de pH et/ou de sang occulte et pliées transversalement, généralement en zigzag d'une manière générale, qui permet de détecter de façon précoce le syndrome urologique félin. Imprégnées par de l'urine alcaline évacuée par le chat, les bandes de papier traitées avec l'indicateur de pH changent visiblement de couleur. Si l'urine de chat comporte du sang occulte ou visible, ces bandes, traitées au moyen de l'indicateur de sang occulte, changent nettement de couleur. L'association dans la litière de bandes de papier indicateur de pH et de bandes de papier indicateur de sang occulte, permet de déceler tant le pH alcalin que la présence de sang occulte dans le même échantillon d'urine. Les variations de couleur se voient aisément, ce qui évite un contact non hygiénique avec la litière.
