High-Tech Gadgets for Pets

The technology age may have been created by humans, but why shouldn’t pets also benefit? After all, Buster’s iPawd may relieve his canine anxiety issues, and Fluffy’s litter box could actually save her life.


4 High-Tech Gadgets for Pets:

Health Meter cat litter is not only biodegradable, but acts as an illness detection and odor eliminator. The litter actually changes color if your cat has any sign of urinary stone or kidney problems, bladder infection, or liver disease.

Tagg the Pet Tracker finds your lost dogs GPS tracking.  Tagg receives alerts and finds your pet on a map. And with their new activity tracking, you can also see how much exercise Fido is getting.

Speaking of exercise, you can now see how much activity your pooch gets when you are away from home. DogTek Eyenimal Pet Video Camera is the world’s first pet video camera. The small camera attaches to your dog’s collar and can capture up to two and a half hours of video. Besides monitoring their activity level, it could be very interesting to see the world from your dog’s perspective.

iCalmDog is the portable solution to canine anxiety… anywhere! The portable, compact player plays music clinically demonstrated to relieve canine anxiety issues. The small device with fabulous sound quality fits in the palm of your hand. But, as you can see in the main picture above of Italian Greyhound rescue Cyrus hugging his iCalmDog, you may not be able to get it away from your dog. You have your iPhone and iPod, now Buster has is own iPawd. Want to win one for your dog? Here’s how…

This sounds like an awesome remedy for canine anxiety! I look forward to trying the free download with our dog! It beats giving him meds (which I only give when lightening or fireworks)! TY!

After years (yes, years) of searching and trying things to calm our severe separation anxiety dog, iCalm may be the answer (without sedation which I do not want to do)! Bravo whomever created this!

The iCalmDog! sounds like a fabulous natural way to help your stressed pooch relax. My dog has a Type A personality, especially at night. It would be fabulous if this worked as we're barked out of bed several times a night by our hyper vigilant pooch, an 80 lb. dog with a 200 lb. bark!
