ASSOCIATED PRESS: Smart collars allow owners to track the health of their pets.

PetPace, based in Burlington, Massachusetts, has a medical collar that can measure a dog’s vital signs and other information to look for signs of pain. Irregularities trigger a notice by phone, text or email. Voyce, created by I4C Innovations Inc., and based in Chantilly, Virginia, has a consumer version that tracks similar information. It also has a Voyce Pro that is available to veterinarians to prescribe for pets recovering from surgery or long-term illness.

Both smart collars can be programmed to monitor for a pet’s specific illness. Dogs and cats over 8 pounds can use them.
