My 12-year-old, rescued Golden Retriever is hypothyroid and has hip dysplasia. I use PetPace to monitor her pain levels, and to keep an eye on her general health remotely from my office. I noticed that even though her blood thyroid levels were in a perfect range, her body temperature and heart rate were running just a bit higher than those of our other dogs. I adjusted the dose of her thyroid medication, and she is now in the normal range.
Without the information of real-time heart rate and body temperature, which were not provided by our previous collar monitor brand, I would never have known that she needed to be on a slightly lower dose. Thanks to PetPace, I think we’ll have this sweet old girl a lot longer!
