The smart collar system works for both dogs and cats, and uses an array of non-invasive sensors to continuously measure a pet’s temperature, pulse, respiration, activity levels, calories, positions and heart rate variability.

In addition to its health monitoring function, each PetPace device allows owners to remotely set and track activity and calories goals. The device is also equipped with an alert engine, to immediately notify a pet owner via smartphone when an irregularity is detected within a pet’s vital signs.

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.
