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 pets’ lives.


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.
