Urine Sample Storage

Recommended Posts

I need to catch a urine sample from Jenny today but cannot take it to the vet immediately. I'll take it in today, just not right away. Can I refrigerate it for 3-4 hours?

Yes, refrigerate it. Also, you want to catch a first morning specimen so that the specific gravity will be accurate. Let the vet know that it is the "first morning".

Uh, oh.  Her 'first morning' was at 5am. I just stood in the doorway in my p.j.'s, half asleep, until she was done doing her business. It's now 9:17am and the girl refuses to pee!
