New Android, iOS app enables pet caregivers to constantly monitor pet health data measured via smart wearable tech
BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) JANUARY 13, 2016
PetPace, creators of a revolutionary health and well-being smart collar used to monitor and relay pet health data to veterinarians and pet owners, announced today the release of a new professional mobile app for veterinarians and animal care professionals.
This first-of-its-kind mobile app allows caregivers to access patient vital signs and health-related data anytime, anywhere. It provides easy access to data, reports and alerts for hospitalized patients or pets requiring medical monitoring at home. Available for Android and iOS, the PetPace mobile app is the mobile extension of the popular PetPace web app, which is already in widespread use by veterinarians in the US, Canada and the UK.
“The Mobile Health revolution, already making great strides in people medicine, is expanding into the veterinary world,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, DVM, DABVP, and Chief Veterinarian for PetPace. “Veterinarians and caregivers can now be constantly connected to their patients. This not only brings pet healthcare to a whole new level, but also measurably strengthens the bond between veterinarians and their clients,” he concluded.
PetPace is also releasing a new set of real-time alerts involving pet activity and posture habits which can potentially indicate medical and behavioral problems. Avi Menkes, the CEO of PetPace added, “These advanced features are not available in any other platform and demonstrate PetPace’s commitment to maintaining industry leadership.”
The PetPace Professional app, for veterinarians and animal care professionals available free on Google Play and the iTunes App Store, works in conjunction with the PetPace collar, non-invasive wearable tech that tracks pet vital signs – temperature, pulse, respiration, activity, positions, calories, pain and more. The collar, intended for dogs and cats as small as eight pounds, automatically and continuously updates information in the app and sends real-time alerts and reports to caregivers and owners.
