Tom Boyd founded BioPet Labs in 2008. Boyd says he was fascinated by DNA technology but wanted to find a new way to use it. BioPet Labs has two divisions, PooPrints, and BioPet DNA.
Both divisions provide similar services. With more than 40% of people not picking up their dog’s “business”, apartment managers or HOA board members can send samples and BioPet Labs will help to identify the culprit. Cost is $70, but dog owners end up footing the bill when their dog is identified as the guilty party.
BioPet DNA testing goes beyond telling owners exactly what breed(s) their dog is/are, but identifies possible health problems that might develop. Dog breeders can assure their customers that puppies are 100% purebred by using this service.
In 2017, BioPet raked in $7 million. Headquarters are located in Knoxville, Tennessee.
