To become the most trusted Veterinary Profession health measurement technology.
VetMeasure was founded in 2015 by Kevin Maher. Kevin continued to see wearable health monitoring devices for both people and animals; however, the ideal device for animals had not yet been created. There were gaps between the animal and the veterinarian, the animal and the owner, and the veterinarian and the owner. Kevin thought, “What if our animals could tell us more about how they feel as well as their health and well-being?” And so, VetMeasure was born with an innovative team consisting of engineers, animal scientists, animal enthusiasts, and supported by veterinary researchers to improve veterinary care and veterinary-client relations. You can read more about the team here and more about our product here.
The VetMeasure team has created a health monitoring device for animals in the form of a comfortable harness. The harness design enables the most accurate detection of an animal’s health statistics for veterinarians and owners to better optimize care and treatment options.
