About PetPace:

PetPace was founded in 2012 to bring peace of mind to pet owners and prevent unnecessary pain and suffering for dogs and cats through improved pet health and quality of life. PetPace specializes in the remote continuous monitoring of pet vital signs by utilizing advanced analytical methods and alerting models. The company’s low power, wireless collar is fitted with an array of non-invasive sensors that continuously monitor a range of physiological and behavioral parameters. Once an abnormal sign or behavior is detected, a sophisticated cloud-based analytical engine evaluates the signs and, if needed, sends an immediate alert regarding any suspected condition. This allows the owner or the veterinarian to take preemptive action to protect the pet’s health. PetPace collars are suitable for pets at all ages, especially for older pets, sick pets, or pets that may have a higher predisposition to various health risks.
