Nova Biomedical provided consumables, trained the investigators, performed maintenance, and loaned the Stat Profile Prime+ Vet instrument for the duration of the study and funded clinical pathology testing. The manufacturer approved a study protocol before the initiation of the study and viewed but did not edit the manuscript prior to submission.
Results were presented in abstract form at the 25th International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium, Washington, DC, September 2019.
