ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / May 19, 2022 / Zomedica Corp. (NYSE American:ZOM) (“Zomedica” or the “Company”), a veterinary health company offering diagnostic and therapeutic products for companion animals, today announced that it has purchased a $1.0 million convertible note from Structured Monitoring Products, Inc. (SMP), makers of the VetGuardianTM wireless remote pet monitoring platform, and in connection therewith has acquired the option to act as a sales agent for SMP’s platform. Under the terms of the agreement, Zomedica will also have the option to acquire the VetGuardian product line for use in Animal Health. Exercise of both options is subject to certain conditions, including negotiation and execution of mutually acceptable agreements.
The VetGuardian Platform improves the quality of care of pets during recovery from surgery, and for those staying in clinic overnight by providing real time remote monitoring of the pet’s vital signs with the ability to alert staff if the vital signs exceed preset ranges. Its unique patented doppler technology allows VetGuardian to read vital signs in real time without wired leads, or a harness on the pet, thus allowing the pet to rest comfortably during recovery.
“We are excited to announce this investment and potential collaboration with SMP” said Greg Blair, VP of Business Development for Zomedica, who will become a member of SMP’s Board of Directors pursuant to the terms of the agreement. “This investment is part of Zomedica’s ongoing commitment to working with partners across the veterinary industry in flexible ways to bring innovative products that provide clinical value to market. This investment will enable SMP to accelerate the development and commercialization of VetGuardian.”
“Veterinary clinics want to track their patients’ vital signs remotely with zero-touch monitoring, to help detect recovery problems early and create less stress for veterinary staff, pets and pet parents. VetGuardian’s product delivers that standard of care today in clinics across the country. We are excited to be working with Zomedica to take our product to the next level.” Said Vik Ramprakash, Founder and CEO of Structured Monitoring Products.
