Pet Care Through a New Lens
A pioneering mission to collect and interpret the health stories of hundreds of thousands of dogs to improve the lives of pets everywhere.
Your pet's behavior offers extraordinary, yet often hidden, insights into his or her well-being. By observing pets' behavior and health histories with unprecedented detail and scale, we seek to detect previously unseen patterns that are early indicators of changes in well-being. We strive to provide pet owners and caregivers with groundbreaking insights to enable a new era of proactive, preventative care for pets.
We are asking dog owners to help us gather data that may improve the lives of all pets - and have fun in the process! Together, we'll take pet care to a new level on our mission to help pets live healthier, happier lives.Learn More
How It Works
To uncover the hidden relationships between dogs' actions and wellness, we'll need an unprecedented view into their lives. That's where you and your dog come in.
BehaviorPet Insight Project is enabled by Whistle FIT, a smart, collar-worn device that captures information about your dog's behavior around-the-clock, which you can view through an app.
WellnessWhen you enroll in the project and take your dog to Banfield Pet Hospital for comprehensive wellness exams, information about your dog's health is collected and synced with the behavior data from FIT.
Our research team will explore millions of health and behavior pairings collected from hundreds of thousands of dogs, searching for hidden patterns that could be early indicators of illness. We'll teach FIT to detect those patterns and notify pet owners and caregivers when things don't look right - providing an extra set of powerful eyes to catch issues that would otherwise be impossible to notice.
