How to set companion pet ability to tooltip

I'm trying to parse the data from the FloatingPetBattleAbilityTooltip however I don't actually know how to set the ability to the tooltip, and I can't find much information online.



Code:
local tip = FloatingPetBattleAbilityTooltip
local text = tip.Description:GetText()
print(text)
Works just fine for getting the text, but only if i manually click an ability.

Does anyone know how to do this, or is there a better way to get ability tooltip information on companion pet abilities?

Code:
FloatingPetBattleAbility_Show(abilityID,maxHealth,power,speed)
local tip = FloatingPetBattleAbilityTooltip
local text = tip.Description:GetText()
print(text)
You probably want to tip:Hide() afterwards too if you just wanted to get the text.
