All My Children Wear Fur Coats had the pleasure of meeting Alon Rosenberg, the founder of Coastline Global, a company with a unique approach to an age old problem – how to collect urine samples from cats and dogs for diagnostic purposes.  I recently had my dog, Darla, at the vet and they needed a urine sample.  Recently, I was chasing her around the yard with a cup in my hand trying to get close enough to her while she is “doing her business” to collect the necessary sample.  This can be an exercise in frustration.     Read more
