Merck Animal Health Launches Sure Petcare Animo GPS

Merck Animal Health has launched Animo® GPS, an activity and behavior monitor for dogs with GPS tracking capabilities. The product can alert pet owners within 20 seconds if their dog leaves its designated safe zone and offers real-time tracking with frequent location updates when a dog goes missing.

Dr. Christine Royal, DVM and an associate vice president at Merck Animal Health, said in a news release that one in three dogs will go missing in their lifetime, and 80 percent of them will escape from their own home or yard.

“Speaking from experience, it only takes a moment for a dog to slip out – and knowing within seconds that they've done so can make all the difference in ensuring a safe return home," she said. "Speed and accuracy were critical product features as we developed Animo GPS, so owners can be alerted quickly when and if their dog escapes.”

Animo GPS is lightweight, weather-resistant, uses smart technology and has a 12-week battery life. In addition to the safety features, the device captures data on sleep quality, barking, scratching and shaking, and can alert the owner to changes that could indicate health issues.
