We love pets

We believe the relationship with our pets is one of the most important bonds we have in life, and that a better understanding of our pets’ health is critical to strengthening that connection.

Our expertise in pets, technology, and data analytics has allowed us to build a company set on developing a system of smart products for owners and vets — a system that grows with every owner that joins in, has the power to enrich each pet-owner relationship, and carries the potential to add years to every pet's life.


We are a passionate group of technologists with collective experience across leading technology and consumer products companies, including Amazon, AOL, Apple, Bain, BCG, Genentech, Google, HP, Microsoft, Philips, Sierra Wireless, Sony Ericsson, and Texas Instruments.

Office Pets

They're the reason we do what we do. Their smiling faces and personalities make our work all worth it. From beta-testing the first prototypes to taste-testing the things we have for lunch, they're our furry companions for good.
