Heres our regular rundown of new and notable veterinary products.
Online relief veterinarian platform
Roo, a San Francisco- and Houston-based startup, has launched an online platform connecting veterinary professionals to veterinary hospitals. The service enables hospitals to fulfill short-term personnel needs while allowing high-quality professionals to easily secure freelance work. Using the Roo platform, veterinary hospitals can post shifts in real time, allowing doctors to plan vacations or even call in sick. Relief veterinarians can fill these shifts according to their own availability, skills and preferences. For more information, visit roo.vet.
Companion Animal Health
Therapeutic laser handpiece
A “smart” handpiece for the veterinary market, the Empower IQ comes standard on Companion's newest therapy laser, the CTX-IQ. This new product has been engineered to produce consistent clinical outcomes while supporting both new and experienced staff with real-time guidance with the optional Empower IQ Delivery System. The Empower IQ offers both haptic and visual feedback that alerts the user when treatment speed should be adjusted. This ensures that patients are receiving the most accurate therapeutic dose of energy.
ProDen PlaqueOff Powder is a dietary supplement, suitable for both cats and dogs, that can help reduce plaque and tartar. A natural product made from specially selected Norwegian seaweed, ProDen PlaqueOff Powder has been found to have specific beneficial effects for oral care, reducing bad breath by up to 63 percent after 12 weeks and reducing plaque by up to 35 percent after the first eight weeks. Independent study results were submitted for review to the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC).
UnderDog Pet Products
Orthopedic pet bed
The UnderDog Orthopedic Pet Bed brings ROHO Dry Flotation Technology for therapeutic rest from the human health market to pets. The UnderDog bed reduces painful pressure points through even distribution of weight and improves the pet's circulation. This helps to ensure a comfortable rest, increased energy and faster recovery after training, injury or play. The bed has experienced quick acceptance from veterinarians for postsurgical patients, canine athletes and geriatric pets.
The Company of Animals
The Halti No-Pull Harness is designed to provide the best possible result for those whose dogs are prone to pulling on the leash. The unique design of the Harness includes a stop-pull lifting feature connected at the back and, in cases of stronger-pulling dogs, an optional front chest attachment that provides even more control and stability when used with a dual-clip leash. Plush underarm and chest panel padding help keep dogs comfortable.
