Pet Tech: Gadgets To Help Improve Your Pets’ Lives

As technology continues to become more prevalent in our daily lives, one industry has taken on the trend of digitally enhancing their products: Petcare. More than 67% of American households own at least one pet. With over 300 million mammals, birds, and miscellaneous amphibians in homes across the U.S., there’s probably a gadget or two that could enhance your pet-owning experience. You may also want to look on to see what other pet care products you can get to help your pet live their fullest life.

Owning a pet isn’t for the faint of heart. With regular play time, attention, food and supplies, medical care and other expenses, an animal can quickly gobble a large piece of your spending pie and social calendar. Chances are you already own some type of smart technology that is used on a daily basis, so it makes sense for that computerization to shift to pet care. Fortunately, there are gadgets and services that make animal care more convenient and enjoyable for both of you.

There are four main categories that are targeted by pettech companies, including:

  1. Home health care: These products monitor health and allow better analytics for veterinarians, such as at-home health tests, trackers and calming devices.

  2. Owner convenience: Included in this category are products that take care of daily tasks, such as automatic feeders and litter boxes.

  3. Communication and entertainment: These smart toys keep pets entertained when home alone. This category also includes cameras that let you check on your pet when you’re away.

  4. Safety: Safety products keep pets protected inside and outside, including location monitors, training collars and electronic fences.

With these innovations hitting the shelves, check out some additional gadgets that can improve your pets’ health and happiness in the accompanying resource.
