Brazilian authorities certify PetPace smart collar for dogs, cats

BURLINGTON, Mass. – PetPace, the provider of an innovative smart collar for remote continuous monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity, was granted the Certificate of Homologation following the completion of the certification requirements set by Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) on August 21.

PetPace products are scheduled to be available for purchase in Brazil through the company’s online store later this month. PetPace is currently being used by leading universities, veterinarians in both general and specialty practices, and pet owners at home.

The company’s smart collars are already successfully monitoring vital signs and saving the lives of dogs and cats across the EU, U.S., Canada, U.K., Israel, Australia and New Zealand.

“For us, it was an absolute honor to work with PetPace. Not only do they have a great and innovative product, which is incredibly helpful to any pet owner, they understand the importance of meeting the safety and regulatory requirements in each country their product is available. It shows how much they care about their customers and their beloved pets,” said Maristela Bento, CEO of Master Certificações.

Pet Pace’s Health Monitoring Solution allows pet owners to track vital signs like temperature, pulse, respiration, plus heart rate variability, activity and calories, and will send alerts to the owner through a smartphone app if any of parameters change and indicate a problem.

“We’re excited to move one step closer to bringing PetPace’s innovative technology solutions to Brazil,” said Avi Menkes, CEO of PetPace. “Our goal in creating PetPace is to help pet owners and veterinarians worldwide, better understand pet health and wellness easily from their internet-connected device. Bringing our technology to Brazil is a massive step in accomplishing that goal.”

In addition to receiving smartphone alerts of impending medical emergencies, PetPace’s mobile application provides an in-depth look into nearly every metric of a pet’s health. Recorded data is displayed in easy to understand graphical interface, making it easy to monitor specific aspects of a pet’s health and wellbeing over time. This feature is especially useful for owners caring for older or sick pets.

Health data recorded by the collar can also be shared with a pet’s primary care veterinarian, allowing them to better understand a pet’s overall health or receive notifications in an emergency.
