Blazing a trail in data-driven care and diagnostics
In collaboration with experts across Mars Petcare, scientists at WALTHAM Petcare Science Institute, and external research partners, we are able to equip the veterinary industry with the data and resources that can help to prevent illnesses instead of treating them.
Our pioneering diagnostics tools are helping our veterinary teams to deliver proactive care in every practice. One such diagnostic tool, RenalTech, developed by Mars Veterinary Health scientists and Antech Diagnostics, helps veterinarians to diagnose chronic kidney disease in cats well before the disease becomes clinically apparent. This is just one example of the many predictive tools we have in the pipeline.
Pet care through a new lens
We are also accelerating the pace of molecular genetics through MyDogDNA, a tool that detects genetic health markers and helps veterinarians to deliver individualized, targeted and timely preventive pet care. Through the development of diagnostics, the harnessing of data insights and the application of agile technologies such as artificial intelligence, we are advancing preventive pet health and improving the lives of millions of pets around the world.
Accessible and affordable pet care for all
We believe that people and pets are better together. That’s why we are making the future of accessible and affordable pet care a priority. Our pet wellness plans help pet owners to predict the cost of veterinary care, helping to reduce the financial impact of pet ownership. By 2023, access to urgent veterinary care via medical emergency grant programs will be available in all of our hospitals and clinics. We also aim to better serve our clients by providing access to virtual care solutions across our hospitals by 2025.
