BURLINGTON, Conn., Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vet Innovations, Inc. announced today that it will introduce PortionPro Rx™ to veterinarians at the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) Conference to be held in Orlando, Florida, from February 4 to 8, 2017. This unique prescribed solution features proprietary portion and access-control technology designed for use in pet feeding within multi-pet homes to help reverse and prevent pet obesity, a widespread and growing health concern.
A whopping 58% of cats and 54% of dogs in the U.S. are overweight or obese, according to 2015 research conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention.
To help veterinarians address the obesity epidemic, PortionPro Rx delivers groundbreaking innovation as the only veterinary-grade medical device that automatically dispenses portion-controlled food to a specific pet while preventing access by all others. This multi-pet feeding solution integrates Pet Field Communications™ (PFC), Vet Innovations' patented radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, to identify individual pets and control access to food.
PortionPro Rx also makes it easier to feed prescription diets in multi-pet settings. PFC ensures the right pet gets the needed special diet while eliminating the risk of consumption by other pets.
"We are excited to unveil this unique prescribed solution to simplify feeding and improve compliance with weight management protocols in multi-pet homes," says Bob LaRoche, Vet Innovations' president and chief executive officer. "We will offer PortionPro Rx exclusively through veterinarians, and deliveries to pet parents will begin later this year."
