Pet Care Moves Into the Cloud with PetPace’s Wearables

Taking pet care to a whole new level, PetPace has released a new mobile app aimed at bringing the cloud to pet care monitoring. A healthcare tool for our furbabies, veterinarians are able to analyze pet health data on-the-go and make sure that critically ill animals are still being cared for around the clock.
Animal care professionals have the power to access an app that stores pet health charts and provides them with ongoing monitoring of temperature and vital signs, allowing real-time communications that include respiration, pulse, activity, positions, pain, calories, and more.
Wearable technologies allow synchronization via pet collars, servicing both dogs and cats as little as eight pounds in size. Furparents can monitor their babies from home or work, providing them just a little additional support and keeping clinics free of unnecessary calls to check up on a pet repeatedly. In fact, there is a much more thorough flow of communication in this manner, which allows clinics to be more productive.
Available on both Android and iOS, this app takes pride in expanding trends in mobile healthcare and wearables to the pet care industry, saving lives as a result.
Real-time alerts will now keep pets even more looked after than ever before. Pet owners will also receive live updates and reports on their pet’s health status. This means that you may actually know more about your own pet — and earlier — than if you were standing in the clinic yourself! There is also a deeper sense of accountability through this monitoring process.
“The Mobile Health revolution, already making great strides in people medicine, is expanding into the veterinary world,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, DVM, DABVP, and Chief Veterinarian for PetPace. “Veterinarians and caregivers can now be constantly connected to their patients. This not only brings pet healthcare to a whole new level, but also measurably strengthens the bond between veterinarians and their clients,” he concluded.
At high-traffic and short-handed clinics, pet care can become a very difficult task. Vets also have lives outside of the clinic that include necessary sleeping, eating, and showering. Already putting their own lives on “paws” to make sure our babies are healthy and full of life, our favorite vets will now be more productive outside the office and are able remain on-call while spending just a little bit more time with their own families. Thanks, PetPace! That’s definitely something we can shake on!
