How it Works

How it Works

Dogs can’t speak.

Good news is they leave clues about how healthy they are every day.

Why Poop

Even though they can't talk to us, our dogs' poop holds valuable visual clues to help us understand their health. Stool is the window into a dog's digestive health and many issues can be detected through irregular bowel movements.

Machine Learning

At DIG Labs, we use machine learning to unlock custom insights into your dog’s health, starting with one poop photo. Image based tracking and detection methods will help monitor progress over time and help pet parent's more easily communicate with their vet.

 

Our Science

We believe that science can transform the way we care for our pets. Our application uses widely accepted scales such as the Bristol Stool Score to draw key insights on your pet's health. Our robust insight engine is formally reviewed by our veterinary advisory board regularly to ensure we are keeping up with the key standards of care in the industry.

What happens when you put it all together?

Dogs Live healthier, longer lives and improve other health and behavior issues. Pet parents avoid expensive emergencies.

In partnership with a team of veterinarians, veterinary scientists, microbiologists, nutritionists, and pet experts, we are actively working on the best ways to assess our pets health.
