Since our pets can’t tell us when they have health problems, their illnesses may be very serious already by the time they look sick to us.
IoT technologies could connect various pet products to the internet, and many life activities of our pets may be monitored without us being with our pets all the time. Their activities can be logged in the cloud server and viewed through applications on our smartphones and tablets.
Or smartphone applications can be designed to alert pet owners when abnormalities are detected. For example, if pets are not eating well or not going to the bathroom as often, the app will tell us, and we know there may be something wrong.
Date log can be shared with the vets for evaluation and diagnosis. In the future, artificial intelligence could work on the big data collected through various IoT pet products to improve pet medicine.
