We would like to invite you to the launch of our newly designed, innovative faecal collection devices for cattle and dogs.

Hygienic and user-friendly ways are required for faecal collection from animals. For cattle, this can be to collect faecal samples for research purposes i.e. collection of microbes/analysis of faeces. For dogs, a way to contain diarrhoea from sick animals, and e.g.peri-operatively when normal toileting is not possible, would reduce exposure for animal carers and reduce cleaning required. We have developed two exciting products, a calf jacket, specifically engineered through textile research, and a disposable dog harness, both of which can increase sample collection/containment with reduced exposure for animal handling staff.
