Home Health & Nutrition Monitoring for Cats and Dogs of all Ages, Shapes and Sizes
How Does it Work?
By using the Healthy Pet Connect app to track food amounts and weight, adjustments can be made weekly instead of waiting for an annual visit to the vet - or worse, an unexpected health or behavioral condition.
We monitor the amount fed and weight loss rate to insure safe & effective weight loss. Pets (especially cats) that lose weight too quickly are at risk of serious problems (muscle wasting, hepatic lipidosis) We work directly with your veterinarian and require a prescription food, exam and possible blood work to insure safety for pets over BCS of 8/9.
Detecting inadvertent weight loss in older pets early especially in cats is another valuable use
How Much Does it Cost?
The app and veterinary dashboard are both free. For a limited time the cost of our personalized pet health ecosystem system (cat and small dog body weight scale, food scale and measuring system) including set up with your veterinarian is $239 plus S&H (based on a $19.95/mo for 12 months subscription with scales provided at no charge) and $179 plus S&H for larger dogs (same system except no body weight scale) based on a $14.95/mo subscription for 12 months 5% of every subscription goes to the rescue of your choice.
We have lots of experience with home IoT devices (feeders, activity monitors and passive scales) which we are happy to personalize to your household if needed.
Preventing just one veterinary visit per year would pay for subscription!
What Technology Do We Use?
All of the scales we use are pet friendly (stable) and accurate (20x more accurate than the typical human bathroom scale). Combined with our unique Bug & Roo food & treat measuring system that virtually ensures accurate measuring & food delivery it will work, we have proven that! (with peer review published data)
For large dogs we are partnering with multiple scale companies to provide rescues, larger dog daycares and veterinary clinics with affordable accurate pet friendly connected scales so that veterinarians can easily keep track of trends without frequent visits to their already overloaded schedule.
Our HPC app is open source to work with any other open source home pet health Io device (Feeders, Webcams, activity monitors, thermometers, etc) As technology is proven useful & reliable we are happy to partner and collaborate with to leverage home pet health monitoring to detect & prevent disease allowing our beloved pets to thrive!
