Date:3/6/2012

LOVELAND, Colo., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heska Corporation (NASDAQ: HSKA), a provider of advanced veterinary diagnostic and other specialty veterinary products, today announced that The Patent Board, a leading independent provider of best practices research, tools and metrics for patent analysis and intellectual property investment (http://www.patentboard.com), has again ranked Heska's Science Strength in the top 50 of the Biotechnology industry.

The Patent Board's ranking evaluates patents issued or applied for over the last 12 months. This is the second consecutive ranking by The Patent Board of Heska's IP portfolio. More information can be found online at www.PatentBoard.com.

"We are pleased to once again have our intellectual property and, accordingly, our scientific innovation recognized by a respected third party," said Dr. Robert Grieve, Heska's Chairman and CEO. "Heska's founding value was predicated on great science in important markets. Execution of that science led to substantial proprietary intellectual property; the quality of these assets may often be overlooked. Much of this foundational intellectual property is applicable to markets of parasite prevention and control, the largest markets in animal health. Heska will continue to work to find the right opportunities to unlock this value, most likely some form of an alliance with a company that has access to pharmaceutical discovery resources and a commitment to parasite control markets."

As of February 29, 2012, Heska owns, co-owns or has rights to 184 issued U.S. patents and three pending U.S. patent applications with a corresponding foreign patent portfolio including 131 issued patents and 15 pending patent applications in various foreign countries.
