How Much Does Cat Urinalysis Cost?

One of the most common reasons cat owners bring their cat to the vet is due to it urinating outside of the litterbox.  If this happens, it can be due to few things such as a bladder infection, urinary crystals, interstitial cystitis or even triggered by stress.  Regardless of what the reason may be, a vet will want to perform a urinalysis to see what the problem may be.

A urinalysis is a routine test that can report the physical and the chemical properties of the urine.  Vets will use this test to see how healthy the kidneys and urinary system is, but it can also reveal problems in the organ system.

    Cat urinalysis

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. E F L (Pearland,  Texas) paid $79 and said:

    $79.00 for the test, plus another $10.00 for “urine collection” (suck it up off exam table with syringe). then the med. was $30.00, when it retails for $14.00. Even cheaper online. So ask about costs when you see the vet and negotiate or be prepped for sticker shock.

    ps Don’t get me wrong, this is a vet I highly trust and they do good work.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. Elle (Crestwood,  Kentucky) paid $150 and said:

    Free office visit on pet plan $0
    Antibiotic injection $40
    Urinalysis $50
    Anti-inflammatory injection $20
    Obtaining UA via cystocentesis $30
    Total; $150.

    Way WAY too much $$$$ for a simple UTI.
    But, getting the cat better is what’s important. Can’t help it if the vets are money hungry price gougers.

    Was it worth it? Yes
