Trace protein may be normal in dog or cat’s urine test

Dogs and cats who are on a high protein diet will usually show a trace amount of protein in their urine test.  My cat Belle was on a special diet which was high in protein and she always tested “trace” on the protein parameter.  My veterinarian said it was due to her high protein diet and to contact him if it ever went above trace (which it never did).

Her annual blood work always came out normal as well, so it was great to be able to keep such a close eye on her test results.
