LOVELAND, Colo., Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Heska Corporation (NASDAQ: HSKA - News; "Heska" or the "Company"),

a provider of advanced veterinary diagnostic and specialty products, announced today an agreement to supply over 100 PetVetCare Centers ("PetVetCare") veterinary hospitals with in-house laboratory diagnostic equipment and supplies through 2024,
which may be extended by the Parties.

Under the agreement, Heska's in-house blood diagnostics analyzers will be placed into PetVetCare's general, specialty referral, and emergency hospitals throughout the United States.

Upgrades to Heska solutions have begun in select PetVetCare hospitals and will be broadly released throughout 2018 as requested by each PetVetCare local leadership team.

Steve Eyl, Heska's Executive Vice President, commented, "After successfully completing a lengthy and thorough evaluation for accuracy and workflow, Heska is honored to have been selected as PetVetCare's long-term provider of mission critical blood diagnostics.
