When it comes to your dog’s health, you don’t have time for guessing games.

The animals we bring into our lives are more than pets – they’re family.

Tara and Jessica have firsthand experience with going above and beyond to keep their dogs healthy.

In 2019, their rescue dogs, Sammy and Kali, were experiencing unexplainable digestive issues. In their quest for answers, they approached local veterinarians. They had numerous emergency visits. But they still had not rooted out the main cause.

That’s when Tara and Jessica decided to find the answer themselves.

They put their decades of experience in health tech, business management, and their passion for dog rescue into action.

They conducted extensive research into key health indicators in dogs. What they discovered is that the stool is a key indicator in helping dogs who are experiencing symptoms of illness or infection. Often, testing the stool is the first step toward diagnosing the issue.

To share their hard-won insights with other dog owners, Tara and Jessica started DIG Labs. Their veterinarian-trusted app provides a lab-inspired digestive health check for your dog.
