Pet Health Checkup (for urinary problems or damage to the grass)

Dear Dr. Hadaway,
We are so impressed with your product the "Pet Health Check Up". With one simple in home urine test we were able to verify our suspicion that our much loved cat is diabetic. The test is easy, the directions are clear and easy to follow, and best of all, it eliminated the usually traumatic car-ride to take our Kitty to the office to know what her problem was.  Since there are two test strips in the package, we each independently conducted the test to make sure we weren't "agreeing on errors". We would recommend this product to anyone who loves their pet.Yours truly, Marianne P. and Mike C.


I'm a veterinarian and I think at home tests for basic animal diseases should be the next movement in animal care. More and more pet owners want to care for their pet but can’t afford it. If more people knew that there were tests like these available then I'm sure people would use them.  Pet owners would appreciate the fact that they can save time and money in the convenience of their everyday life. Feline leukemia can be a huge problem in younger cats especially if you have more than one and with this test you can check all your cats without exposing them to other cats. If detected early on feline leukemia is manageable so I would recommending testing your cat as soon as possible.  D

Dr. Hadaway,
This will be my second year using your product.  And, I sincerely thank you for it.  Like many people, I cannot bring my pets to vets because of the excessive costs.  I must treat them myself.  I'm going to be posting your product on many kiosks of the local trails that I use here.  If you start getting orders from Maine, maybe that will be the reason why.  At least, I hope I can help. Thank you for the work you do, too.

Dear Perfect Pet Products,
My cat, Isis, has been having urinary tract problems and struvite crystals. I used the the Pet Health Checkup to see that she is getting well. I use them once a month when she is well, and when she is sick.  I check for blood to see if the medication and special food is working as it should. I really adore my little princess and love the fact that I can check her urine at home whenever I think that she may have a recurring bladder disease. I note her results in the booklet and use it to see the health changes from time to time.
Thank you, Lars


Perfect Pet Products staff,
Peppy, my toy poodle, uses the Pet Health Checkup on a monthly basis and I log all her results and we take them to her Dr. at every 6 month visit. Her Dr. is very impressed with the Pet Health Checkup and said this is a great idea and that I should definitely keep it up on a monthly basis. It is also a great way to ease my mind in between visits. I also couldn't believe the time and effort that was invested when I had questions!  The love for animals shows! Thank you Perfect Pet Products and Dr. Hadaway.

Perfect Pet Products,
I can't think of a single reason not to use the Pet Health Checkup. If you love your pet and want to be pro-active in their health care then this is something that you must have. I have 4 dogs and routinely utilize the Pet Health Checkup to monitor their urine levels. Since so many diseases can be detected through the urine, the Pet Health Checkup gives me peace of mind by allowing me to monitor my dogs between routine vet exams. I truly believe, that by using the Pet Health Checkup along with routine vet care I am giving my pets the best possible care.

Doctors,
I would LOVE to recommend this product!!! My 6 year old cat(Prissy) has had horrible problems with bladder infections. Before I had heard of the Pet Health Checkup, I had to just wait until she showed signs of straining or accidents in the house! Now that I regularly use the Pet Health Checkup, I detect irregularities before she shows signs of bleeding, straining, and pain. Thank you for my peace of mind that I get by using the Pet Health Checkup!

Dr. Hadaway and Perfect Pet Products,
I was using the Pet Health Checkup to check my cats' pH levels while changing to a new food. Instead, I discovered my male cat, Clyde, had a serious urinary tract infection. He had shown no symptoms at all. Thank you for your wonderful product and for saving Clyde from some serious health issues.

Perfect Pet Products staff,
Patti, my little poodle, has been my friend for 10 years. A friend of mine told me about the Pet Health Checkup and I tried it. Testing Patti was easy, but to my surprise I found blood in her urine. My vet ran some tests and found a bacterial infection, which was easily treated. My vet told me if I had waited until my next routine visit, Patti would have experienced a lot of pain and possibly more serious problems. Thanks! I am telling all of my friends about your great product.

 Fecal Worm Testing in Pets

Dr. Hadaway,
Thank you, we are very excited about the fecal worm product. Most of my friends are professional k9 handlers and sport dog folks and they do their own vaccinations, suture removal, etc themselves and really appreciate these products. I'm surprised that more companies don't do this. Kudos.

I have a dog kennel to board a breed dogs and I used to have a veterinarian do a routine check for worms every couple of months, now with these test all I have to do is collect the samples and mail them in and wait for the results. The cost is half as much and I don’t have the trip and time it takes to deal with the Vets staff.  The samples are tested at a vet lab so it's the same type of results, but I also love the written results that I never get from my vet.  I save myself the money and time and get more information.  They tell me if the dog has worms, what kind of worms, AND then which type of wormer will work best.  Now nearly every dog I have and board is free of worms---that’s a great advertisement.

 I took your report on the worm test to the farm store and got a wormer for all of my dogs. This saved me at least $10.00/dog. After I wormed them I retested and all were negative. I promise you I will retest all of my dogs for worms twice a year and for heartworm once a year using your tests and the same ivermectin for heartworm that i used for the worms.

Dr. Hadaway and Perfect Pet Products staff, I am writing to tell you how much I appreciate the service that you provide, almost as much as I appreciate the time and money that I saved.  It is nice to know that I can now more easily afford all of the tests that my pets need. Since I live in Michigan I know that my pets are exposed to alot of bugs and other diseases that they carry. You have helped me provide a higher quality care for my pets.  I used your test for worms and was very happy with your speedy results.
Thank you, Mike Z.


Perfect Pet Products staff,
Thank-you for taking the time to respond. As far as fecals and parasites are concerned, parasites eggs will not disappear from the fecal material over time. We have kept fecal material refrigerated for months and still get the same results on a fecal flotation examination. Fecal material that is not refrigerated is also fine for a week or so, but in hot and humid weather Strongyle type eggs will larvate fairly quickly, although the larvae can still be seen in the fecal examination. The only other issue with storing fecal material for long periods of time would be the growth of molds and fungi, this will not interfere with a fecal exam either. One thing to note that might be a problem is if the fecal material becomes desiccated over months. This may actually destroy some parasite eggs over a very long period of time. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else you need.

I've used these kits on my cats and dog and I love not having to make the trip to the vet. All you have to do is collect a sample, mail it, then wait for results. Since some worms are invisible to the human eye I test all my pets at least once a year. You can buy over the counter worm remedies if you know your pet has worms and with this test you can also see if the wormer you bought worked. Smartest new item for pet owners.  Laura M.

Perfect Pet Products staff,
I appreciate the money I saved on the worm test as well as the heartworm and lymes disease tests. The samples were easier to collect than I thought when we did our usual nail trim. Your staff called me in 2 days with the results. I was relieved that everything was negative especially the lyme test since I know of pets and people who have had lyme disease.

Perfect Pet Products staff,
I just wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful products and service you provide. My family and I have two dogs, both mixed breeds that we got from the local animal shelter. We love and enjoy our pets very much, but found that taking them both in for medication and heartworm check-ups became costly. Your service is perfect because we (my neighbor works at a Vet. hospital) were able to get a blood sample easily and mail it in. I would recommend PPP products and services to anyone. I realize it is always wise to go to the vet if you think your pet is ill, but for the routine tests this service was great for me. Thanks again for helping me keep my dogs healthy and happy.
Sincerely, Jennifer Y.


Perfect Pet Products staff,
My 5 dogs and I live in southern Ill. where there is no vet real close. All my dogs had diarrhea for months. When one of them started to have blood, I ordered your worm test. Your test showed roundworms and hookworms. I was able to get the right wormers at the store. I thought they were all going to die, but now they are better than ever. I don't have a lot of money so I really could not take them to a vet. I retested 1 month later and they were all back to normal. I will test all my dogs at least once every 6 months or if they show any signs before that. I know I should test for heartworm and I will when I get enough money.
Thanks again, R. from Illinois


Steve:
I hope all is well with you. Dr. Schantz referred your question to me. Regarding your question of samples that are 2-5 days old. I recommend that pet owners either place samples in the refrigerator (many will not do that) or put them in a tightly capped container(or bag) that excludes air. Samples should be stored in a cool, dry location, out of direct sunlight(until they are mailed). If stored in this way, most stages will not develop to the point where identification is hindered. The problem with egg embryonation is that hookworm larvae will hatch from eggs. This is not problematic if you can identify hookworm larvae (many can't). It then requires that you differentiate these larvae from other parasites (i.e. Strongyloides, Aelurostrongylus, Filaroides, Angiostrongylus etc.). I am presuming that you mean a sugar solution of 1.20 (instead of 1.020). If you do mean 1.20, the answer is yes. However, we recommend that fecal flotation solution be tested regularly with a hydrometer (obtainable from Fisher Scientific 800-766-7000 [catalogue no. 11-542B) to assure that the specific gravity remains at that level. Accuracy is the same for equine strongyles if the specific gravity is maintained. Many equine veterinarians do not conduct routine fecal examination because horse's are usually on well-defined interval deworming programs. However, I agree that periodic fecal examination can be very helpful in detecting possible small strongyle resistance and also in detecting parasites not removed by broad spectrum dewormers. Hope to see you soon.

Dr. Hadaway,
Got a couple of e-mails today concerning some questions you have about fecal analysis.I've been doing the diagnostics here at the U of Minnesota vet school for about 30 years and have a few opinions about fecal flotations (ancient they may be).I always suggest getting the freshest possible samples to avoid the problems of enviromental contamination with free-living rhabditiform nematodes, fly larvae, etc. Differentiating larvae of Strongyloides, hookworm, and free-living nematodes is always a challenge which generally can be avoided by testing only fresh feces.  Ascarid, whipworm and coccidia are very resistant and can be identified easily in old feces.  Giardia can be reliably diagnosed using centrifugal flotation with ZnSO4 (1.18 sp. gr.). In reality, I see very few larval nematodes in small animals.My feeling is that you can do a reasonably good job using sugar flotation on three day old feces. Rounds, whips, and coccidia will be there and be identifiable. If you do see larval nematodes, do a retest on fresh feces.
      I personally think running fecals on horses is good preventative medicine. I don't know why they are not run on more horses. We are starting to see ivermectin resistence in sheep, who knows if or when we'll start seeing it in horses. Hopefully this will answer some of your questions.  Feel free to write or call if you have more concerns.

Ruth,
Thank you very much for your letter. I am especially impressed by the rapid response, but more impressively by the fact that you took the initiative to write this letter, without a request from me for the letter.
I do not want to take advantage of your thoughtfulness or time, however, we also discussed how fresh a fecal (stool) sample can be and still produce reliable results. Would you mind sending me a short letter explaining that the sample from pets or horses can be a week old and still produce reliable results.
Thank you very much.
Best Regards,
Dr. Steven Hadaway


Dr. Hadaway,
In reply to your inquiry the other day, the Veterinarians on staff at MSU recommend checking animals by running a qualitative fecal (flotation) exam both before and then again two weeks after worming. They tell all of the students that this is the proper protocol, so they are actually following the drug company recommendations.
Why veterinarians in the field ignore this I am not sure. It may be that the field veterinarians recommend the same , but the owners decide not to follow through. As you probably know owners can purchase horse wormers over the counter without going to a veterinarian. As far as worming animals for tapeworms, because the eggs or segments are usually not seen in fecal material, the veterinarians on staff here at MSU recommend a once per year worming for tapes with Praziquantal in the fall. I hope this helps.

   Equine Worm Testing
Our test demonstrate that in most farms 45-50% of horses are negative for worms and 10-17% of horses are resistant to the most common wormers so in most cases you are wasting your money by trying to guess what is the best wormer to use. This is the reason drug companies suggest that you rotate thru 4 different wormers. However, if only two of the 4 wormers that you choose work and the wormer lasts only 1 month before the horse is reinfested, then your horse is infested with worms for 10 of the 12 months each year. Just think about this and your horse and your feed bill. Use this test to KNOW if your horse has worms and what to do about it-MOVE INTO the 21st Century. Our test is the ONLY way to answer these questions:
  1. Did the wormer that I just used work, which wormer should I use that will work, is my horse resistant to various wormers and which ones?              
  2. Does your horse have worms and which type of worms?
  3. How severe is the worm infestation?
  4. Do I need to use any wormers at all if my horses are consistently negative?

 As the owner of two horses whose care I take very seriously, I am always concerned about parasitic worms and the best possible program to control them. Whenever practical, I take a holistic approach to treatment rather than blindly overmedicating or using chemicals. My 24 year old TB has had episodes of colic at the change of seasons in years past, so I was particularly concerned about this Fall's worming.
I saw an ad for Perfect Pet Products Equine Fecal exam which made the process of testing for types and numbers of worms so easy. I ordered the tests and received them in several days.  The next day they were back in the mail on their way to Dr. Steven Hadaway at Perfect Pet Products. As promised, I had results e-mailed very quickly. My Connemara tested positive for Large Strongyles only and the TB was negative for any worms. I could now make and educated decision about which wormer to use for one and the security of knowing I didn't have to worm the other at this time.
I plan to retest the Connemara in a month to insure that the worming was effective and will use Perfect Pet to my many equestrian friends and hope that more horse owners will test before they use a chemical wormer - both for the horse's sake as well as their own peace of mind.
Sincerely,
C.K. from CT.


Dear Dr.Hadaway,
I walked down the aisle to get Rosie (our thoroughbred mare) to groom her and there she was in her stall surrounded by hay, sleeping! For the first time since we've had her she wasn't frantically gorging herself, or pacing her stall looking for food! Rosie was a young race horse that was turned out in a field for two years when we bought her. We had little or no idea about her previous care so we wormed her twice when we got her and then put her on our barn's rotating worming routine. A few months later we put her into a rigorous training program to turn her into an event horse. She responded beautifully and put on lots of muscle, but never put on weight. We never thought twice about a connection between worms and lack of weight since none of the other horses in the barn had a problem. We just attributed it to her being a thoroughbred mare.
 After a year we finally decided to test the effectiveness of the worming routine which is when we sent you the first sample. I could kick myself for not doing it sooner! The whole process was so easy and within a few days you respond by phone and email with the results, which showed she still had a moderate number of Strongyles. So we knew right away our barn's routine wasn't working! We have changed our worming program and send out our samples routinely now, which is a small price to pay for our mare's health!Through this whole process I've benefited greatly with an education on wormers and Rosie's benefited greatly with her health. Her attitude is visibly brighter, her coat is shiny, and she is plump! I want to thank you for providing us with this simple tool and for the education!
Sincerely, a very grateful customer,
Cari

I really appreciate your service!  The service was immediate and interactive when I had questions.  Thank you and I will be back.  This will be my method of monitoring the problem and developing worm control on my farm.
I have a special circumstances because I have introduced a significantly infected donkey to the environment, now I will have to pay the price.  They have not been on the pasture but only a couple of times recently during an active period, only in paddocks, I wish that had not happened.  The saga continues. I am studying an article of controlling infestations to the environment.  That will be the key. My mare has an itchy belly, but tested negative.  She is also being treated by Ivermectin.

Perfect Pet Products staff,
Thank you for the fast results! I love this kit. It's so easy. I will be sure to get the kit again when I retest my cat in September. Tony is about 5-6 years old. He's been positive since I adopted him in 2006. He is on LTCI injections from IMULAN. People are shocked when I tell them he has Leukemia.   Alex W.


Dr. Hadaway and Perfect Pet Products staff, Thank you so much for the Leukemia results on my cat Sylvestor. I am very happy, and I will definitely be in touch in the near future. Take care, Mary Ann

 Heartworm, Lyme, and Erhlichia Testing

Many customers use Ivermectin(which is the exact same drug as Heartgard) instead of Heartgard preventatives which saves 90-95% of the cost of yearly heartworm prevention. Ivermectin is sold at most farm, equine, or pet supply companies-catalogs. This SAVES $30-150 depending on the weight of your dog. See "e-how" or other websites for articles written by veterinarians that show how safe this is, how to dose, etc.                --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------To Dr Hadaway / Perfect Pet Products, LLC
I am writing to tell you how much I appreciate the complete veterinary service that you provide, almost as much as I appreciate the time and money that I saved.  It is nice to know that when I am in Michigan I have such quality care for my pets. Lyme disease is a problem where I live and I very much appreciated the money I saved on the Heartworm TEST@HOME. The sample was amazingly easy to collect. Your staff called me within 2 days with the results. I was relieved that everything was negative.  I appreciate your prompt return call to me explaining how accurate your tests are and that you use the highly accurate 3DX tests. We also save money on the purchase of the fecal test to check our dogs for worms. Regards, Michelle L.


Dr. Hadaway, as you may already know from my phone call to your staff I am so happy I can flip. I can not believe how much I saved on my three dogs on your tests but especially on the ivermecton drugs that I bought at the farm store. Enough heartworm ivermecton for my 3 labs for the whole year for $5.95 saves me $300. The horse wormer was easy to use and they loved it. For any others who are, like me, reluctant to use this the dosing was easy and safe-the store manager showed me how to give a 60# dose.  The manager told me about a premixed diluted ivermecton drug for use in birds,or other smaller pets but it cost more so i did not by it. He also had a bottle of Ivermectin from Merch(who makes heartquard) for only $55 that would treat hundred of dogs that could be given orally or as an under the skin injection. I passed on that but if I had more dogs i would have bought.      Thanks again AND I WILL SPREAD THE WORD.     Laura

Perfect Pet Products staff,
I want to express my gratitude for every thing you have done to save my 29 dogs. I could never have afforded to test all my dogs for anything. Thank you for talking to me and explaining how common heartworm and worms are. You saved me lots of money, but also some heartache. Since I finally could afford the test, I found out that 3 of my dogs had heartworm and realized that they needed treatments. I talked to my Veterinarian, as you suggested, and he agreed to treat all 3 dogs for less than half, if I did them all at the same time.

The TEST@HOME  kits are a great way to Check Up on the health of your pet in between visits to your veterinarian. Most vets would agree the home test to diagnose heartworm disease, feline leukemia, lyme disease, and worms in dogs, worms in cats, worms in horses, livestock, and nearly all other pets (rabbits, birds, reptiles, etc) is a helpful means of maintaining good health in your cat, dog, or horse. It is peace of mind knowing  your pet does not have heartworm, lyme (Lyme Disease) Elisa, feline leukemia, worms/parasites. The Felv test uses only a small swab of saliva as the sample and is the same Elisa test used by veterinarians.
Please click on the Pet Health Check Up which is a 1 step at home urine test to promote your pets health and includes helpful information on puppy training, dog training, lawn/lawn damage, ways to improve your grass as well as info on collars.
Dr. Hadaway, just for your info and your other users, there is a lot of sources for heartworm preventatives other than veterinary hospital. I can not believe how easy it is and how inexpensive it is to buy the same drug as Hartguard at farm stores or over the internet. I am upset at the fact that some veterinarians and drug companies continue to make $100 per dog on drugs that I can buy for less than $10 for ALL MY DOGS-and is the same thing! I now have used these other drugs for a year on all my dogs--none of them died and all are negative this year. All the sources that I can find say that ivermectin is very safe even at 20 times the dose. Check out eHOW.com, JustBirdsstuff.com, Amazon.com, calvetsupply.com, etc.

I was used to just giving my dog Ivermectin heartworm medicine every month but I never thought about the fact that she might have heartworm even after I'm giving her the medicine. Well I purchased this kit because I wanted to know if she had heartworm. I sent in her sample and the results came back negative, but as you mentioned since she was on the the medicine I will test her again in a couple months. I didn't have to go to my vet and didn't waste medicine. Although you have to poke their paw or do a nail trim I felt much more comfortable doing it myself in a place she knew well and I was able to give her treats immediate after and she forgot all about it. I hope there will continue to be tests like this. Thanks, M. Pullins

Lawn and Urine Damage Test

I'm a veterinarian and I think at home tests for basic animal diseases should be the next movement in animal care. More and more pet owners want to care for their pet but can’t afford it. If more people knew that there were tests like these available then I'm sure people would use them.  Pet owners would appreciate the fact that they can save time and money in the convenience of their everyday life. Feline leukemia can be a huge problem in younger cats especially if you have more than one and with this test you can check all your cats without exposing them to other cats. If detected early on feline leukemia is manageable so I would recommending testing your cat as soon as possible.  Dr. SPH
