Biobank Offers Annual Health Checks and Whistle Device

Posted by Molly Jacobson on January 11, 2024

Mars Petcare is recruiting dogs for their Biobank, an ambitious lifetime study for dogs and cats. Enrollees will be followed throughout their lifetime, genetically tested, and contribute to data for researchers. If your dog (or cat!) is a good candidate, they will get a free annual exam at an affiliated hospital (VCA, Banfield, and BluePearl are participating), including blood and fecal tests, a WISDOM PANEL DNA test, and a WHISTLE health device. What will you do in return? Fill out questionnaires (online) and, of course, love your pet. Thousands of dogs and cats are sought to help many millions more future companion animals.
