PetPace's IoT health monitoring technology a promising solution for identifying and managing pet pain

With Animal Pain Awareness Month taking place in September, PetPace, the provider of innovative health monitoring technology for pets, is recommending that pet owners utilize IoT technology to monitor their pet for signs of pain or stress.

PetPace’s health monitoring smart collars allow for remote continuous monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity directly from a mobile device. Trackable vital signs include temperature, pulse, respiration, heart rate variability (HRV), activity levels, calories and more.

HRV is described as variations in inter-beat intervals regardless of the heart rate itself. Small changes in the way the nervous system controls the heart’s pace can reveal a lot about stressors on the body.
The HRV monitoring technology used in PetPace smart collars has proven to be a potential tool for veterinary professionals.

Subtle changes in a pet’s behavior that indicate pain can be difficult to notice with the naked eye. With technology like PetPace smart collars, pet owners can monitor vital signs or receive smartphone alerts when symptoms of medical complications arise.

“It’s important that pet owners take the time to learn the indicators of pain in their pets and Animal Pain Awareness Month helps to promote that initiative,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, chief veterinarian at PetPace. “However, even with proper training and education, some indicators are so subtle, they go unnoticed. PetPace smart collars allow pet owners to not just observe, but to actively monitor their pet’s well-being.”

The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management proclaimed September as Animal Pain Awareness Month in 2015 with the goal of raising awareness and educating pet owners on how to identify acute and chronic pain symptoms.

The PetPace smart collar’s biometric sensors constantly monitor a pet’s vital signs and can notify the pet’s owner via a smartphone alert or internet-connected device in the event of a medical emergency.

Through PetPace’s mobile application, pet owners can get an in-depth look into nearly every metric of their pet’s health. Recorded data is displayed in an easy-to-understand graphical interface, allowing pet owners to monitor specific aspects of a pet’s health and wellbeing with ease.
