Our bulldog and bulldog puppy’s health and medical problems, as well as pain, often remain hidden until it reaches a critical tipping point. Early detection of any diseases your bulldog is facing, as well as detection of future health issues will help prevent undue suffering, improve your bulldog’s quality of life and significantly reduce health-related costs.
I sat down for a Q & A with my hospital staff and members from the Southern California Bulldog Rescue (SCBR), a non for profit volunteer based group that I have been supporting for a decade providing daily shelter and medical care to their rescued bulldogs. I would like to thank the founders of PetPace Inc and their leading veterinarian Dr. Dagan for their support giving back to rescue a % of all sales generated from our site…..to learn more click here.
Joel (Southern California Bulldog Rescue): What exactly is the PetPace collar? Thank you Dr. Kraemer, can you tell us how does the PetPace collar work?
Dr. Kraemer Answers: The Pet Pace collar is a patented, non-invasive, monitoring collar that can improve the quality of life of our bulldog pet owners as well as any other pets you may have as they mature and age. Your bulldog or other beloved pet’s health and well-being will be monitored wirelessly 24 hours a day, tracking its most important vitals such as Temperature, Pulse and Respiration as well as your pet’s range of physical and behavioral activities (Positions, Calories, Resting, Walking and Running as well as Eating). All this information is easily displayed, downloaded and accessed via a free cell phone app. In the event of any irregularities in your pet’s behavior or vital statistics, an immediate alarm is sent to the account holder and if requested by the pet owner the alarm would also be sent to Dr. Kraemer and his staff.
Shannon (Vet4HealthyPet Advanced Medical Care Team Member) How did you get involved and how this monitoring device help us improve the medical care of our rescued dogs?
Dr. Kraemer Answers I have been collaborating with the PetPace medical team in an attempt to improve our ability to monitor medical cases including before and after Stem Cell Therapy patients. In addition, I have been working together with Southern California Bulldog Rescue (SCBR) team and the Bulldog Breeding Association on a joint collaboration with the PetPace veterinarian and development team in an effort to improve the bulldog rescue adoption process. The petpace collar allows us to remotely monitor our rescued dog in their first few week with their new adapting family, this allows us to help and support the new owners to better familiarize themselves with their new bulldog medical needs.
Viki (Southern California Bulldog Rescue) : What are the benefits of this device for my bulldog and my other pets?
Dr. Kraemer Answers: Bulldogs and Bulldogs puppies do not effectively communicate pain, sickness or discomfort and therefore health problems often remain hidden and go unnoticed till they reach a critical state. This life saving monitor enables early detection of disease and other health issues, improves clinical outcome, enhances quality of life and significantly reduces health-related costs.
