Petrics tracks pet activity, health and nutrition in smart bed
Petrics, a pet health technology company, is looking to make tracking weight, activity levels and rest periods a whole lot easier for pet owners. By launching the Smart Pet Bed, Activity Tracker, pet Health and Nutrition App, the Las Vegas-based company is aiming to help those four-legged family members achieve optimal weight ranges.
Each bed will include a built-in scale, along with thermostatic heating and cooling. Users will be able to automatically or manually adjust the temperature until it’s ideal for each pet based on their breed, environment and geographic location.
“Our mission is to empower every pet owner with access to nutritional and behavioral information, so they can provide the best possible care and comfort for their pets and help them live longer, healthier lives,” Ed Hall, CEO at Petrics, said. “Our pet health ecosystem helps pet parents react quickly and effectively to their pet’s needs, and ultimately, saves lives through early detection and intervention.”
The Smart Pet Bed and Activity Tracker communicate with the Petrics Health and Nutrition App, creating a health ecosystem that grants pet parents the ability to monitor and track nutrition data, along with obtaining food and diet recommendations, the company said.

[quote-from-article] The new line of single herb powders is formulated with whole herbs as they’re found in nature, preserving the Nature’s Way pledge to quality and transparency while optimizing the health benefits of each powder.
These powders quickly dissolve in any beverage, making it easy to absorb the wellness benefits of turmeric, beet root or activated coconut charcoal. The new powders are now available at select grocery and natural food retailers nationwide.
