How to... Collect a urine sample from your dog reading-time-icon 45 second watch

Your vet might ask you to collect a urine sample from your dog if they need to check for certain diseases, or simply to check the dog’s general health.

Dr David Tweedle demonstrates the simplest way of collecting a urine sample from your dog...
 

Get yourself a bit of tin foil or a disposable Tupperware box, flatten it, and when your dog goes to do their business, place beneath the urine stream. You can then tip the urine into the container your vet has provided, seal it, and return it to the vet as soon as possible.
