June 15, 2022

GUILFORD, Conn., NEW YORK, NY, and DENVER – Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY), a digital health company transforming care with handheld, whole-body, multispecies ultrasound, was approved to join Fear Free’s Preferred Product Program.

Fear Free provides veterinary professionals, pet professionals, animal welfare communities, and pet owners with the knowledge and tools to look after both a pet’s physical and emotional wellbeing. The Butterfly iQ+ Vet contributes to Fear Free objectives by providing veterinarians and technicians with a portable, non-invasive assessment tool.

“Before we began using the Butterfly iQ+ Vet, we were unable to do ultrasound in the exam room, and our old unit returned lower quality images,” said Monique Feyrecilde, LVT, VTS (Behavior), at Mercer Island Veterinary Clinic in Mercer Island, Wash. “Now, we bring in a Butterfly and a padded V-trough to the exam room. The owner can stay with their pet during the scan, and the pet can even enjoy lickable treats if medically appropriate.”

The most common Butterfly iQ+ Vet uses at the Mercer Island Veterinary Clinic include bladder evaluations, for urinary stones and sediment, and ultrasound-guided cystocentesis using Butterfly’s Needle Viz™ technology that allows for on-screen, in-plane needle visualization for precise aspirates and injections.

Butterfly iQ+ Vet is the world’s only single probe, whole-body, multi-species imaging system.The iQ+ Vet is the second-generation of Butterfly’s veterinary ultrasound device and brings sharper imaging, a new procedural guidance tool, and hardware improvements that make the solution more powerful, versatile, and easy-to-use.

The Fear Free Preferred Product Program is designed to provide Fear Free Certified® Professionals access to products and services that are aligned with Fear Free protocols,procedures, and recommendations. Fear Free members will receive a 5% discount on their iQ+Vet purchase. The Butterfly iQ+ Vet can be purchased by veterinary practitioners in approved countries at the Butterfly store or by contacting vetsupport@butterflynetwork.com.*
