Helsinki, Finland, Oct 19, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Jarno Kukila, CEO and co-founder of diagnostics company Bellylabs Ltd, calls it the most significant pet pregnancy-related innovation in decades.
“There are no other rapid home pregnancy tests for dogs, so we’re creating a brand new category for the global market. Bellylabs Canine Pregnancy Test is our first product and we see tremendous potential in the introduction of new health technologies for testing pets at home. “
“The gestation period in dogs is relatively short, around 63 days. The early detection of pregnancy enables the owner or breeder to create the best possible conditions for the bitch. Simple, safe and reliable, the Bellylabs pregnancy test gives a reassuring feeling From home is a great way to ensure a less stressful and more convenient method of detecting pregnancy, “says Kukila.
Developed with top veterinarians, researchers and breeders, the Bellylabs Pregnancy Test detects the relaxin hormone – which is only produced by the placenta of a pregnant bitch – from a sample of a single drop of blood snapped from the dog’s lip. Thus, a distinction can also be made between pseudo-pregnancy and real pregnancy. Bellylabs recommends taking the test no earlier than 28 days after ovulation.
“The idea comes from our co-founders, who identified challenges in everyday breeding. We believed there had to be an easier, more reliable, and less expensive way to determine the gestation of dogs that was being carried out in the development Europe, China and the USA. “
“We have tested the Bellylabs pregnancy test on over 30 breeds of dogs and its accuracy is 96 percent. After a positive result, we recommend that you consult a veterinarian who can determine the number of fetuses and monitor their health via ultrasound or X-ray, ”says Kukila.
You can buy Bellylabs pregnancy test online at www.belly-labs.com for 59 €. It will soon also be available internationally in pet shops. Patent submitted.
