The collaboration signals Petriage’s intent to integrate real-time pet health data from its AI-driven symptom analysis tool into Smart Tracking Technologies’ all-new Link Smart Pet Wearable device. Under the partnership, Link users will have access to Petriage’s symptom analysis tool and, for a nominal additional monthly fee, to unlimited access to Petriage Live, a premium 24/7 veterinary Nurse Helpline.
The Link Smart Pet Wearable is a sleek, user-friendly device, engineered to meet all pet needs – from location and activity monitoring to training and safety features. The device is built on a proprietary technology platform that works with Link’s smartphone app to provide an ecosystem that connects dog parents with every aspect of their pet’s well-being. In addition to GPS tracking and customized activity monitoring and analysis, the Link smart pet wearable features access to vet records, a built-in flashlight, and unique built-in training tools. Link’s app is fully supported by a Florida-based concierge services team that delivers a superior customer experience.
The partnership will empower Link dog owners to use Petriage’s connected care platform – which strengthens bonds between veterinarians and more than 500,000 pet parents – by giving them the ability to better assess their pet’s health, including proactive alerts that their pet may require medical attention.
Petriage’s patent-protected symptom analysis tool informs pet parents with 97%-plus accuracy of the urgency to seek care for their ailing dog or cat, based on information inputted about their pet’s symptoms. Its premium Petriage Live 24/7 Nurse Helpline provides trusted advice from a team of dedicated vet nurses after a pet parent’s use of the symptom analysis tool.

Adds Dr. Shlomo Freiman, Petriage’s co-founder and Chief Veterinary Officer, « From Petriage’s earliest days, I envisioned a future in which historical and real-time pet wearable data would be combined with observational data inputted by pet parents and incorporated into an AI-Driven symptom analysis tool. We are actively working to establish the parameters of wearable data that will trigger proactive medical alerts and expect to start beta testing during the second half of 2022. »
While still young, the pet wearables market exceeded $2.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a roughly 22% compound annual growth rate by 2027 to a market valuation of $10 billion-plus, predicts Global Markets Insight.
