Since 2007, the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention has measured obesity of pets in the U.S and last year found that more than 58 percent of cats and nearly 54 percent of dogs in the U.S. were overweight or obese. Of the dogs and cats listed in the survey, more than 30 percent of cats and 20 percent of dogs were described as obese
The company has been recognized by pet owners and veterinary professionals for its contribution to saving pet lives, streamlining pet healthcare at home and in the clinic, and improving the overall quality of life for dogs and cats. In another recent survey, four out of five veterinarians recommend a health monitoring collar like PetPace for older or sick pets.
The PetPace collar is a non-invasive, sensor-rich wearable technology, which is especially useful for older pets, sick pets and pets that are at-risk for health issues, which includes overweight and obese pets.
PetPace monitors a range of physiological and behavioral attributes including temperature, pulse, respiration, activity positions, heart rate variability, calories and more. The system also includes a cloud-based engine for close observation, analysis, timely detection, and alerting of medical and behavioral problems in dogs and cats.
