Have you ever wanted a reliable, quick, non-invasive, in-home aka stress free and super simple testing method to check the general wellness of your pet in under a minute? CheckUp™ has got you covered! CheckUp tests for the four common conditions affecting cats and dogs of all ages through urinalysis, including: High Glucose Levels, Kidney Conditions, Urinary Tract Infection, and Blood in the Urine. Today we caught up with Brittany the VP of Business Development for Coastline Global Inc to ask her a few questions about the company that has been around since 2010.

*Why was it started?
Coastline was started when the company learned about the benefits of hydrophobic sand for animal urine collection (initially from felines – which also expanded to the laboratory industry). We wanted to provide vets with a reliable method for non-invasive urine collection in clinics to reduce stress for the pet, owner, and technicians. After learning that pet owners have a demand to collect urine from their cats and dogs at home, and to monitor them on a frequent basis, we created CheckUp (www.checkupkit.com). CheckUp is the best method to monitor your pets health at home through simple and easy urine collection and analysis. Coastline is dedicated to creating products that maintain the highest standards of animal welfare, and deeply consider and promote the general health and wellness of animals and companion pets.
*Do you have any animals? If so, name, breed and something interesting about them?
Sadly, my Persian cat passed recently and I haven’t added a new member of the family yet. (Rolo and I are so sorry to hear, we send out condolences)
*What do you specialize in?
Coastline specializes in noninvasive urine collection methods (Kit4Cat and LabSand), and at home detection and monitoring kits (CheckUp – http://www.checkupkit.com) that provide pet owners with a window into their cat or dogs health, even once they have left the clinic.
*What makes your company different from other companies?
CheckUp, created by CG, is the only all-inclusive at home urine collection and monitoring kit on the market. Our product is reliable, validated, easy to use, and highly recommended! Our hydrophobic sand is patented worldwide, and used in 44 countries!
*What types of services do you offer?
We offer the ability for pet parents to be engaged in their pet’s health year round. We provide innovative and easy to use urine collection methods, and reliable testing strips, which will allow you to monitor chronic conditions (High Glucose, Kidney Conditions (Protein), and UTI (pH) or to ensure your pet is staying happy and healthy in between routine visits. Since cats and dogs hide their pain, and can’t always tell us something is wrong, CheckUp is a perfect solution!
*What is the company’s mission?
Our mission is to provide quality products that maintain the highest standards of animal welfare, while being price sensitive and conscious of the environment.
*What is the price range?
CheckUp kits are sold online and in traditional pet stores like Pet Valu and Ruffins Pet Center for $14.99 (USD)
*How would someone contact you?
Please feel free to e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me at 888-999-3050 if you have any questions about CheckUp for Cats and Dogs!
*Any special events coming up this year for you?
We just returned from Interzoo in Germany, will be at SuperZoo in Las Vegas (Booth 5157), AVMA in San Antonio (Booth 119), and other various buying shows to ensure that CheckUp is available worldwide for pet owners to purchase conveniently and use at home!
*What inspires you?
We are inspired by the countless positive feedback we get from pet owners and vets on a daily basis, about how much they appreciate our product. We have had a number of pet parents call to tell us that because of CheckUp, they learned their pet had Diabetes, Kidney Conditions, and UTI’s that could have become way worse without the help of our detection strips. Since pets health can change in-between annual visits, CheckUp ensures your pet is staying healthy year round.
*What do you plan to accomplish with your business in 2016?
We plan to have worldwide distribution and to keep bringing CheckUp to stores near you.
*Do you do any charity work?
We proudly partner with the Foundation For The Handicapped which assembles our products.
