Invoxia has announced it will be launching a Smart Dog Collar this summer which utilises artificial intelligence to monitor dog health and wellbeing, in addition to its whereabouts.
The collar can also monitor a dog’s respiratory and heart vitals, detect anomalies in a dog’s behaviour and alert owners and vets to potential health issues while keeping track of the canine’s whereabouts.
It will be available for an estimated price of $99 (£72.99) with an estimated monthly subscription cost of $12.99 (£9.58).
Amélie Caudron, CEO of Invoxia, said: “Until now, data has been difficult to collect so there are few studies that provide vital feedback on pet health from everyday activity or continuous monitoring.
“With the Smart Collar, the ability to collect at scale a large quantity of data over time, will open up incredible doors for research on correlations between vital signs and dog illnesses. This is how we discover new biomarkers, treatments and medicines.”
