LA-based startup seeks investment to help pet parents keep their pets happy & healthy with a smart urine cup and free iPhone app

Petnostics, makers of the first at-home mobile urine test for pets, will be making its network television debut this week when founder Stephen Chen goes in front of the celebrity investor panel of ABC’s “Shark Tank” on Friday, April 15 at 9pm ET/PT.

Using the same diagnostic technology that veterinarians use in their clinics, pet parents can check their dog or cat’s health instantly with a smart urine cup and the free Petnostics iPhone app to assess potential health issues such as urinary tract infections and diabetes. With results easily shareable to vets and at a fraction of the cost of a vet visit, Petnostics makes healthy living easier for pet families.

Shark Tank gives Petnostics the chance to pitch famous entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban and Ashton Kutcher for an investment in the company, while giving them exposure to a large national television audience.

Checking your pet’s health with Petnostics is easy:

1. Collect: Use Petnostics’ smart urine cup to collect your pet's urine cleanly until you are ready to test with the Petnostics iPhone app. Petnostics also offers hydrophobic cat litter to allow for easy cat urine collection!

2. Seal: Once your pet’s urine is collected, screw on the Petnostics lid to begin testing. The lid is integrated with the same urine test strip that veterinarians use in their clinics and will begin changing colors once it comes in contact with the urine.

3. Analyze: Simply scan the top of the lid with the Petnostics iPhone app and results will be available instantly. Results are also easily shareable with your vet, making it easy for everyone to engage with your pet’s health.

"Showcasing Petnostics on a national stage like Shark Tank is a huge opportunity to further our mission of improving pet health and happiness,” noted Chen. “It brings us one step closer to empowering pet parents to be better informed about their pet’s health by giving them access to diagnostic technology that they can use and afford.”

According to veterinarians, checking your pet's urine is one of the best ways to keep them healthy. It allows for the identification of early warning signs and can help prevent more serious problems from occurring further down the road.
