E-health for pets? Smart collar can send health alerts to vets

Lucas Mearian | June 19, 2014
PetPace's new smart collar is making it easier for veterinarians to track the well-being of pets and keep in touch with owners.

In addition to the early detection of health issues, the device can also watch pets with existing health problems, or those at risk of developing diseases. The cloud service can evaluate a condition, such as diabetes or congestive heart failure, as well as progress and response to treatment.

"Long-term monitoring will provide unprecedented, objective, quantifiable medical history to help with medical assessment of cases," the company said.

PetPace said it has already shipped dozens of systems to veterinary hospitals and to consumers in the U.S.

"We always strive to find ways to improve the service and the overall experience of our clients and their pets," Diane Tower, owner of Andover Animal Hospital in Andover, Mass., said in a statement. "The PetPace collar provides us with a great way to take frequent vitals without being invasive. The doctors, techs, owners and even the pets love it."

PatPace's wireless smart collar can track vital signs and other health indicators in a dog or cat.
