BURLINGTON, Mass. – PetPace, the provider of innovative smart collars for dogs and cats, especially those pets who are older, sick, or predisposed to certain health conditions, is scheduled to demonstrate its technology August 6-8 at the American Veterinary Medical Association Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
The company’s sensor-rich smart collars allow for remote continuous monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity directly from a mobile device or computer. PetPace smart collars are beneficial for veterinary professionals needing to monitor patients and pet owners who want to know more about their pet’s health, especially pets who are older, predisposed or already suffering from a health condition.
PetPace representatives are scheduled to be at booth 402 in the conference’s exhibit hall. There they will showcase their smart collar technology and demonstrate the functionality of their health monitoring mobile application interface.
By attending the event, PetPace hopes to educate veterinary professionals about the benefits to utilizing their technology in day-to-day hospital operations, including the monitoring of older or sick patients when they are discharged. The company is even offering exclusive savings on their products for veterinarians and veterinary hospital staff when they use the code “AVMA16” when ordering.
“PetPace smart collars are completely non-invasive and provide an unrivaled ability to monitor pet health, both at home and during medical treatment,” said Avi Menkes, CEO of PetPace. “We are excited to attend AVMA’s 2016 conference and look forward to sharing our technology with those in attendance. We believe this technology will improve veterinary care and make life easier for veterinary professionals.”
PetPace devices 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.
When a dog or cat wearing a PetPace device develops unusual symptoms, their owner or healthcare professional 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.
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 easy to understand graphical interface, making it easy to monitor specific aspects of a pet’s health over time. This feature is especially useful for owners caring for older or sick pets.
The American Veterinary Medical Association’s 2016 conference will be held inside the San Antonio Convention center in San Antonio, Texas from August 5-9.
PetPace was founded in 2012 to bring peace of mind to pet owners and prevent unnecessary pain and suffering for dogs and cats through improved pet health and quality of life. PetPace specializes in the remote monitoring of pet vital signs by utilizing advanced analytical methods and alerting models. The company’s low power, wireless collar is fitted with an array of sensors that report abnormal vital signs within established physiological and behavioral parameters. Once an abnormal sign or behavior is detected, a sophisticated cloud-based analytical engine evaluates the signs and, if needed, sends an immediate alert regarding any suspected condition. This allows the owner or the vet to take preemptive action to protect the pet’s health. For more information about PetPace real-time pet health monitoring, visit https://petpace.com/.
