New partnership means better health on the horizon for pets in Spain
BURLINGTON, Mass. – On Wednesday, PetPace, the provider of an innovative smart collar for remote continuous monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity, announced a distribution agreement with Ecopet Systems, the largest provider of comprehensive logistics solutions to veterinary centers in Spain.
The agreement will bring PetPace’s revolutionary technology to veterinarians, animal care professionals and pet owners throughout Spain. Previously, PetPace’s dog and cat health monitoring smart collars were only available in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
“PetPace is continuing to expand to prime pet markets following overwhelming global interest in our technology,” said Avi Menkes, the CEO of PetPace. “Together with Ecopet Systems, we will continue to improve veterinary care and the health of dogs and cats in each country we expand to.”
Ecopet is a leading provider of innovative solutions to veterinary clinics and hospitals. The company’s advanced products enhance clinic management, improve veterinary care, and foster closer relationships between caregivers and pet owners.
PetPace’s non-invasive, sensor-rich smart collars continuously monitor a range of physiological and behavioral attributes, including temperature, pulse, respiration, activity, positions, calories, HRV, and more. Pet health data is logged and seamlessly combined with an immediate alert engine for close observation and timely detection of medical and behavior problems in dogs and cats.
PetPace aims to revolutionize the relationship between pets and their owners through awareness and action. When a dog or cat wearing a PetPace device develops unusual symptoms, their owner is immediately notified via a smartphone alert. These automatic alerts prompt pet owners to seek medical attention for their pet and can assist with the early identification of illnesses such as heat stroke, hyperthyroidism, impending heart failure and more.
“Ecopet Systems is proud to add PetPace to the portfolio of services we provide to thousands of veterinary centers all over Spain,” said Juan Martinez, veterinary product manager at Ecopet. “This is a truly revolutionary technology that can tie in well to management, health and nutrition services we already provide, so veterinary centers can now offer advanced, comprehensive care programs to their clients”
