BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – PetPace, the provider of an innovative IoT collar for remote real-time monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity, was showcased December 9 on the #1 lifestyle talk show in Canada, the Marilyn Denis Show.

As part of the show’s annual “10 Days of Giveaways,” PetPace gave away 75 PetPace wireless pet health monitoring collars, including three free months of pet health monitoring – a $195 value for each recipient.

Designed for use on dogs and cats, the PetPace collar uses non-invasive sensors to accurately and continuously monitor temperature, pulse, respiration, HRV, activity levels, positions, calories and more throughout the day. The data, accessible to pet owners and veterinarians via smartphone or web applications, is continuously analyzed by a cloud-based analytics engine that examines individual, historical and breed-specific attributes. If the collar detects any abnormalities, an alert is sent in real-time to owners and veterinarians, allowing for prompt attention and treatment of the issue.

The Marilyn Denis Show reaches some 2.2 million viewers per week, and the “10 Days of Giveaways” shows are among the most-watched episodes. The PetPace collar will be featured live nationally on CTV and CTV.ca, and the episode will repeat throughout the day on CTV 2 in a variety of markets. It will also be available on demand on Marilyn.ca following the air date.

“We are pleased to provide this holiday gift to Canadian pet owners, enabling them to provide even better care for their much-loved companions,” said Mr. Avi Menkes, CEO of PetPace. “Our wearable pet technology raises pet healthcare to a whole new level, and allows both pet owners and veterinarians keep a literal finger on the pulse of pet health, 24/7/365,” he continued.
