Ready to be even more proactive about your pet’s health? - Whistle

Pet parenting is full of surprises—for better or worse. Pulling back the blankets to find your new puppy left her favorite toy in your bed? Good surprise. Finding out your senior dog has gained five pounds since his last vet visit? Bad surprise.

Whether you've had your pet for two weeks or 12 years, staying ahead of routine pet care and planning for the growing expenses as much as possible is always the goal. By pairing modern tools like a Whistle smart device with a Wagmo Wellness Plan you can do just that. This winning combo helps you feel prepared, informed, and always on top of your pet’s proactive care plan

Tech to help you understand how your pet is really doing

We know you want to be by your dog's side 24/7, monitoring their every scratch, lick, and strange sleep position, but that's just not practical. Pets have a sneaky way of hiding changes in their behavior and reminding us of preventative steps we've forgotten to take. That's where Whistle comes in.

Our smart devices monitor your pet’s health and activity around the clock. This daily digital companion gives you a complete picture of your pet's health and behavior, so you always know how they’re doing. Every device tracks vital health indicators like licking, scratching, eating, drinking, sleeping, and activity—and we’ll alert you if a change in behavior signals a potential health issue. So you can get them the care they need as soon as possible.

Here’s an example of how Whistle works in action: You've probably noticed your pet scratching from time to time, but it can be hard to know what's normal and what's cause for concern. Is it an innocent, feel-good scratch? Or a sign of allergies or another skin condition? The longer itchy skin goes untreated, the more likely it is to turn into something like a hot spot or bacterial infection. Here’s where we come in: If we spot a change in your pet’s scratching habits, you’ll get an app notification alerting you to the changes. In the app, you can also see how their scratching behavior has changed throughout the past few days. With this intel, you can begin to problem-solve by trying things like adjusting their diet and routine. Plus, if you do need to visit your vet, you can send a health summary report to them, directly from the app, so they can see all the data.

Wellness plans that make routine care less stressful

Whistle is here to help you track and manage your pet’s health from home, but visiting the pet care pros from time to time is also a crucial component of preventative care. But we know visits to vets, groomers, and other service providers can get expensive. That’s where Wagmo Wellness comes in.

Wagmo Pet Wellness plans reimburse you for pet care expenses like routine exams, blood work, vaccines, prevention medications, dental care, and even grooming appointments. You can visit any service provider in the U.S. (via telemedicine, in-home, or in-office) and after you submit a claim, you’ll be reimbursed within 24 hours. Easy as that.


To give pet parents even more peace of mind, we’ve teamed up with Wagmo to offer Whistle subscribers an exclusive wellness package offer for your pets. With three plans to choose from, it’s easier than ever to stay on top of routine care.

Now, if Whistle flags a potential health issue, you can head to the vet knowing you’re covered. And you can stay on top of routine care visits that help to cut down on health issues before they even happen. For example, regular visits to the groomer have been linked to lower scratching levels.

The preventative care dream team

We know caring for a pet is no easy feat, but with Whistle, Wagmo, and your vet in your corner, we hope to help you feel informed and empowered to make care decisions that will keep your pup feeling their best. Because when our pets feel good, we feel good too.
