The University of Arizona Center for Innovation (UACI) is pleased to announce that uPetsia is the winning startup for the UACI Sponsored Launch Fueled by the Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce competition.
Early-stage Arizona-based biotechnology company uPetsia (rhymes with “You betcha”) is focused on making dog breath smell better for longer. While most products on the market today provide minutes of fresh breath in dogs, uPetsia’s product is incorporated into dog treats and chews and provides hours of minty fresh breath. The underlying technology was developed at the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and BIO5 Institute by founders Eric Lyons, David Baltrus and Scott Zentack.
