PetLabsMD.com Launches the First National Consumer-Direct Pet Lab Testing Company
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - PetLabsMD.com ("Pet-Labs") announced today our launch of the first national consumer-direct pet laboratory testing company. PetLabsMD.com offers health, wellness and specialized pet laboratory testing as described at www.PetLabsMD.com. PetLabMD.com is the first of its kind in the pet industry; it will enable pet owners to purchase affordable testing services directly at 40% to 60% reduced cost and savings for their pets.
"We are very proud of our innovative business. In 2006 according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, nearly half of pet owners considered their pets to be family members. There are more than 72 million pet dogs in the U.S. and nearly 82 million pet cats. The average annual veterinary expenditure per household for all pets was $366. Pet-Labs will revolutionize the pet laboratory industry in the same manner that 800-Pet-Meds fundamentally changed the pet pharmaceutical industry. At PetLabsMD.com we believe that early detection of potential ailments or disease through wellness screening ensures a long healthy life for your pets." said Ed Estriplet, Jr., CEO of PetLabsMD.com.
"PetLabsMD.com takes seriously our motto: 'Did you know a simple and inexpensive lab test could save your pet?' Our professional staff will help educate pet owners on which laboratory tests or profiles will most benefit their pets without wasting money on un-needed tests." said Dr. Matthew J. Toia, D.VM., Chief Veterinary Officer of PetLabsMD.com.
"Dr. Toia is widely known as an innovator in veterinary medicine. He created the first mobile spay/neuter clinic for pets in 1971. In 1984 he introduced the first Pet HMO in New England. Dr. Toia has published several articles in national and state veterinary journals, and in 2008 published his first book "You Want Me To Declaw What?" a series of short stories about some of his more unusual adventures in practice. The revolutionary concept of an internet based direct-to-consumer pet laboratory was a natural move for this innovator. We are proud and excited to have him as our Chief Veterinary Officer." said Estriplet.
