The device is the first one of its kind. Termed Whistle, it examines and gives feedback to the owner about his or her dog’s vital signs. Similar in structure and function to Fitbit which fits on the human wrist and tells you about the pace of your heartbeat and circadian rhythms, Whistle fits in your pooch’s collar and reads its activity and rest levels. But where did this strange Silicon Valley scheme start in the first place?
Well, about a year back a San Francisco company started putting two and two together and pretty soon they came up with a device that they are now exclusively selling on Whistle
official website. There is even a smart phone app that goes along with the gadget and helps in comparative health statistics for your mutt. Whether you are a pet owner or a vet, you can easily monitor the health progress of the hound. Does it need to be neutered? Is it rabid? Do you need to toilet train it? All these questions and more you can find the answers to via Whistle.
The basic objective is to prolong the dog’s days on earth. After human rights come animal rights. The pet industry like the diet industry is a multibillion dollar enterprise. Owners of felines and canines can now watch every move their pets make and remain secure in the surety that they are safe and sound. Shipments of the device will begin later on this summer. You can expect a whole slew of products related to pet needs. There are even gizmos that will measure the quality and quantity of food the pet eats from its plastic bowl.
Many pet owners are lonely people who are entirely or solely reliant on their pets for company. They are obviously interested in prolonging the life and increasing the vitality of their cat or dog. Whistle has even teamed up with vets and veterinary organizations across the United States of America to aid pet hygiene and health. The ultimate goal would be to reach the point where your pet’s biorhythms are being scanned on a minute by minute basis.
