Application of our technology could eliminate that “pet smell” we know so fondly when we enter an animal shelter or pet store. This could increase sales of larger pets, as well as improve the quality of life for the animals by providing a clean living environment.
Our technology may also mitigate the transmission of diseases, such as Seoul virus, between animals and humans. Rats affected with Seoul virus do not show any immediate symptoms and it can take up to 8 weeks to cause symptoms in humans. More information on Seoul virus in rats can be found at Veterinary Bytes under Alerts for Pet Parents.
