"The Petivity Smart Litter Box Monitor is making it possible for cat owners to detect changes in behavior that could indicate an early change in their cat’s health.”

– Dr. Avi Shaprut, DVM

Dr. Avi Shaprut is a veterinary expert at Purina who specializes in emerging trends and innovations in the veterinary space. Dr. Avi began working with the Petivity team early on to support their mission of using the Petivity Smart Litter Box Monitor system to provide relevant and actionable information to pet owners on their cat’s health.

Dr. Avi collaborated with other Petivity pet experts to develop the algorithms that alert pet owners to a change in their cat’s weight and elimination behaviors. These early detection algorithms also help alert pet owners to seek further input from their regular veterinarian when certain changes occur that could potentially be related to changes in the pet’s health status.

As Petivity evolves, Dr. Avi continues to provide important feedback on information pet owners and their veterinarians value most when looking for early insights and interventions into their cats’ health.

New Insights for Cat Owners

"It's very common for cat owners to miss changes that could be caused by serious health conditions like UTI, diabetes, kidney disease, and hyperthyroidism until later in the course, when treatment options are more limited. Together, the Petivity Smart Litter Box Monitor and app bring insights to cat owners that they've never had before."
