BURLINGTON, Mass. – New market surveys show pet owners are on pace to spend more on gifts for their pets this holiday season than ever before, and PetPace, the provider of innovative health monitoring technology for pets, is encouraging pet owners to consider giving their pets the gift of health this year.

Available across the EU, U.S., U.K., Canada, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand, PetPace’s health monitoring smart collar technology is changing the way pet owners care for their pets.

Pet Pace’s Health Monitoring Solution utilizes a series of non-invasive sensors to closely monitor the vital signs, activity and behavior patterns of both dogs and cats. The device tracks vital signs like temperature, pulse, respiration, heart rate variability, activity and calories, and will send alerts to the owner through a smartphone app if any of parameters change and indicate a problem.

In addition to receiving smartphone alerts of impending medical emergencies, PetPace’s mobile application provides an in-depth look into nearly every metric of a pet’s health. Recorded data is displayed in an easy-to-understand graphical interface, making it easy to monitor specific aspects of a pet’s health and wellbeing over time. This feature is especially useful for owners caring for older or sick pets.

“With the holidays quickly approaching, we want holiday shoppers and pet owners to know the facts about health monitoring devices for pets,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, the chief veterinarian of PetPace. “With a PetPace device, pet owners can better understand their pet’s health right from their smartphone and can choose to receive alerts when an abnormality is detected. PetPace is designed to give pet owners peace of mind when it comes to their pet’s health and help enrich their pet’s quality of life.”

Weighing only 1.5 ounces, PetPace’s collar is lightweight, durable and waterproof, and comes in three sizes that fit dogs and cats as small as eight pounds.
