BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - November is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month and experts from PetPace, an innovative health monitoring smart collar for dogs and cats, especially those that are sick, aging or obese, want pet owners to know how to better protect their pet.
According to the Animal Cancer Foundation, roughly 12 million dogs and cats will be diagnosed with some form of cancer each year. Approximately 25 percent of dogs and 20 percent of cats will develop cancer in their lifetime.
Similar to human cancers, pet cancer can be hard to detect early, however diagnosing cancer quickly is essential to successfully treating the disease.
"Nearly half of all cancers are curable if diagnosed in the early stages," said Dr. Asaf Dagan, chief veterinarian of PetPace. "When using a PetPace device pet owners can identify symptoms of a disease much quicker from their smartphone device. Pet owners can even share health data with their family veterinarian, which provides an extra layer of protection for a cat or dogs health."
The company has been recognized by pet owners and veterinary professionals for its unique 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 a recent survey, four out of five veterinarians recommend a health monitoring collar like PetPace for older or sick pets.
For pets already suffering from a form of cancer or undergoing treatment for the disease, PetPace can be used to closely monitor a pet's level of pain and stress. Veterinarians can even utilize PetPace devices to remotely monitor their patient's side effects and recovery while they are home with their owners. This can greatly reduce the amount of stress placed on a pet undergoing treatment by allowing them to recover at home, while still be under close medical supervision.
PetPace continuously monitors a range of physiological and behavioral attributes including temperature, pulse, respiration, activity, positions, heart rate variability (HRV), 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.
