Moli, a 4-year-old, spayed female Siberian Husky cross dog who is generally in good health, was injured by a car when she ran onto the road. A PetPace Health 2.0 smart collar that Moli is wearing documented the pain and discomfort following her injury and her subsequent recovery.
Moli, a healthy and active 4-year-old, spayed female Siberian Husky cross, was hit by a car in the evening hours of Nov. 11, 2023. She suffered scraping wounds and bruises on her left hind leg and inner thigh. She was treated with antibiotics, painkillers, and an Elizabethan collar.
A PetPace Health 2.0 smart collar that Moli is wearing documented multiple changes in the days following the injury.
- Pulse rate increased significantly from an average of 59 beats per minute to over 90 in the hours following the injury (chart 1) and to a daily average of 66 on the next day. On subsequent days, following treatment and clinical improvement, the average daily pulse gradually decreased back to its normal levels (chart 2).
- Resting pulse rate, which is the pulse rate measured specifically during times of deep rest, increased significantly and triggered a red flag in the PetPace Biometric Profile feature (chart 3).
- HRV, a marker for pain and stress, decreased significantly and triggered a red flag in the PetPace Biometric Profile feature (chart 4).
- Activity score decreased for several days after the injury before returning to normal levels (chart 5)
- Posture score decreased for several days after the injury before returning to normal levels (chart 6)
Following treatment, Moli gradually improved clinically and returned to normal behavior and activity within a few days. As described above, the collar accurately documented both the acute injury and the gradual improvement in the following days.
“This case underscores the accuracy and value of the PetPace collar in detecting health issues quickly, followed by tracking treatment efficacy and eventual recovery and return to normal levels”,said Dr. Asaf Dagan, DVM, DABVP, PetPace Chief Veterinary Scientist.
Ayelet Ben-Zvi, the owner of Moli, added:
“Seeing Moli’s vitals helped us monitor her condition in the hours after the injury, making sure she is not in a life-threatening situation, and then giving us peace of mind in knowing that her recovery is moving forward as expected”.
