18 Feb New PetPace App for Android Puts Health Monitoring in Pet Owners’ Back Pockets
Smart new app for Android works with PetPace wearable tech pet collars to continuously update owners with pets’ vitals and sends alerts of any abnormalities.
Studies show that about thirty percent of pets suffer from medical conditions that pet parents are unaware of. Detecting these conditions can make a huge difference for pets well-being, said Dr. Asaf Dagan, Chief Veterinarian for PetPace. Releasing the app for Android users is a very important addition to PetPace wearable technology, allowing owners to monitor and receive alerts on their pets health in real time.
The free app works in conjunction with the PetPace collar, a non-invasive wearable tech used to track pets’ vital signs – temperature, pulse, respiration, activity, positions, calories, pain and more. The collar, intended for dogs and cats over eight pounds, automatically and continuously updates information in the app giving owners relevant push notifications and alerts when necessary. The pet’s veterinarian has access to the data and its analysis, allowing for timely respond to ailments.
Released for iPhone earlier this month, the new app for Android can be downloaded from Google Play.
The smart collar and health data are also available for use by veterinarians through a web application, for in-house intensive monitoring or on outpatients for detailed follow up.
