WaterCollar - A PFD for Dogs PDF Print E-mail

As you may have seen on the news, Arizona has been experiencing some of the most intense rain and flooding in over 100 years. This creates a new set of problems with our pets because we’re seeing waterways and pools overflowing, even as temperatures soar from 90-100+ degrees.

Even if your pet is an excellent swimmer, he may have problems finding his way out of a pool or waterway and this can result in drownings. Drownings occur often when pets who are warm, enter the pool to cool off, then can’t find the stairs to climb out. As a result, we are always searching for ways to keep our pets safe around water when we’re not home.

Recently, we stumbled upon a unique solution from Hedz UP Pets called the WatercollarTM.

Wednesday, 10 September 2014 18:52

The world's first implantable pet microchip that is enabled with GPS tracking may be available as early as 2015.

Escape Alert, LLC has just filed the first international patents for an implantable microchip with GPS tracking for pets.The chip is designed to alert owners if their pets have escaped a specified location, and enable them to track their pet's exact location using GPS. This is the first implantable microchip that allows GPS tracking.

Microchips have been available for years and are used in nearly every rescued animal adopted from reputable animal rescues. Currently, the chips used today do not allow location services such as GPS tracking. Instead, animals are scanned by a veterinarian or animal rescuer, and assuming the chip has been updated with the current owner's contact information, the animal can be returned without further incident.

These new chips will not only alert the pet parents when their pet has escaped a preselected location, but will enable the owner to drive right to the pet's location.
