PetPace, the developer of a wearable tech collar for remote real-time monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity, and the Stevens Company, the largest privately-owned Canadian distributor of medical supplies, announced a distribution agreement that will bring the pet health tracker to Canadian veterinarians, animal care professionals and pet owners for the first time.
The Stevens Company began marketing the PetPace collar in Canada during the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association conference in Toronto in January 2016. It was previously only available in the U.S.
PetPace’s smart collar for dogs and cats continuously monitors a range of physiological and behavioral attributes, and has combined with a real-time alert engine for close observation and timely detection of medical and behavioral problems.
“We are happy to see the commercial success of PetPace drive expansion to other prime markets in North America, and we look forward to working with the Stevens Company, the leading distributor in the Canadian veterinary market,” said Avi Menkes, CEO of PetPace. “Together, we will improve preventive veterinary medicine in Canada while offering pet owners high tech solutions to address pet wellbeing.”
