Undulata’s Nuts and Bolts, “Snoop” (2005-2013) 
The inspiration for NIGHTWATCH®

 

TRIUMPH FROM TRAGEDY

NIGHTWATCH® isn’t the brainchild of boardroom executives. NIGHTWATCH® is a labor of love.

 

In 2013 Jeffrey Schab (Founder & CEO of Protequus LLC) and his partner (Wade Giles) lost their beloved horse, Snoop, to a rare colic event overnight. Snoop lived just a short 8 years and died alone in his stall.

Following Snoop’s death, Jeffrey was driven to make a difference. His sense of loss was paralleled only by his frustration with the status quo and perceived complacency in the industry regarding equine colic. Jeffrey vowed to not let Snoop's death be in vain, and immediately began to invent a solution that could prevent others from experiencing the same pain that he and Wade did. That solution will become what we know today as NIGHTWATCH®.

As a two-time World's Champion equestrian and biomedical engineer with 15+ years of experience in human healthcare, Jeffrey is pioneering a path that bridges his professional expertise with his personal passion. It’s with great pride and respect for our four-legged friends that he leads the NIGHTWATCH® program.

Snoop remains a powerful inspiration and motivation for both Jeffrey and Wade. It is in his memory that NIGHTWATCH® exists to provide critical first alerts for early intervention, ultimately to help save horses' lives.

My Dear Friend,

I can't believe you left this world so soon. It seems like yesterday when we began our friendship together — a friendship I have cherished from the moment I first saw you. We learned so much from one another and grew together in countless ways, like true partners.

Although you're no longer with me, I will hold onto those memories of your nickers when you heard my voice, your funny faces as I scratched your withers, and your incredible heart both in and out of the ring.

No matter how many horses come into my life, there will never be another Snoop Dogg. You were truly one-of-a-kind.

Until I see you again,

Wade

Equine Colic: Complacency No More

Colic is the leading natural cause of death in horses, and the AAEP estimates that more than 900,000 horses in the US will experience an episode of colic this year. However, if caught early 85-90% of these cases can be treated medically and without the need for invasive surgery. Unfortunately, we can't always be there with our horses, especially overnight, to catch the signs, but NIGHTWATCH® can be.

NIGHTWATCH® is designed to be your eyes and ears when you can't be there, alerting you at the first signs of acute equine distress for early intervention.
