Fetch for Pets! Takes on Petnostics Start-Up
Fetch for Pets! has partnered with Petnostics, a California-based start-up, for a line of at-home urine test kit products that allow pet parents to check their pet’s health instantly via the Petnostics smartphone app.
“We are very excited to be working with Fetch for Pets! to bring Petnostics to market,” said Stephen Chen, founder and CEO at Petnostics. “With their help and deep knowledge of the pet space, we know we’ll be able to help pet parents better engage with their pet’s health.”
The Petnostics Urine Test Kit tests 10 urine parameters that can alert pet parents to potential health issues such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, diabetes and bacterial infections. For dogs, urine can be collected straight into the cup or by using a urine collector and then transferring the urine to the cup. The cup is then flipped upside down so that the test strip in the lid of the cup is exposed to the liquid. Pet parents can then determine the results by using the Petnostics app to scan the lid of the cup. For cats, the kit includes hydrophobic cat litter so that urine can be collected easily from the litter box and then transferred to the cup for testing.
For pets with chronic health conditions, Petnostics offers specific test strips so that pets with diabetes, bladder stones or urinary tract infections can be routinely checked. All Petnostics products are made in the USA and are available for worldwide distribution.
“Petnostics fills a huge void in the preventative healthcare space on shelves and offers not only convenience for consumers but a huge cost savings,” said Steven Shweky, president and CEO at Fetch for Pets!. “We are really excited to bring this innovative product line to market.”
