Whistle unveils Whistle Health
Pet technology healthcare service company is rolling out a canine AI smart device
Whistle—a pet technology healthcare service company—has launched its data-driven AI-enabled device that promotes preventative care called Whistle Health.
By collecting data from over 100,000 pets worldwide over 4 years, Whistle created AI that translates the dog's every movement into a personalized and holistic wellness index, offering pet parents constant insight surrounding their pet’s health.1
“Think of Whistle Health as your daily digital companion for your dog—a smart device that provides your pet with a voice, helping you understand them like never before,” said Kate Balingit, general manager at Whistle, in an organizational release.
“Whistle Health doesn’t just detect issues, it also connects pet parents to an entire ecosystem of pet pros for data-driven, personalized care, helping their pets live their happiest and healthiest lives," she continued.
According to the release, Whistle Health uses trillions of clinical insights and data points to track health behaviors such as drinking, eating, scratching, sleeping, licking, fitness, and activity.1 When Whistle Health is coupled with the Whistle app, the device can detect and alert pet parents of any potential health issues (eg, excessive scratching or changes in eating). Pet parents can then be connected to a veterinarian through Whistle’s Ask a Vet.
“It’s hugely impactful when pet parents are able to bring in tracking data collected from a device like Whistle Health—being able to use actual data to inform a treatment plan means veterinary professionals can provide more individualized and tailored care to our patients,” expressed Aletha Carson, DVM, senior manager, data and clinical research.
“Whistle Health is an incredible tool that every veterinarian should incorporate into their care," she added.
