Losing a pet is heartbreaking, evident by the many tributes on social media to commemorate the lives of the pets which have gone before us, including this touching tribute by the Minister of Law and Home Affairs, K Shanmugan to his beloved Samson.
If a pet goes missing, it is important to take action as soon as possible to try to locate them. Perhaps you’re already thinking of letting your pet wear a GPS tracking device to ensure that you’re able to find them when they get lost. However, with fitness trackers available for humans, why not have a wearable that helps you monitor your pet’s health by detecting its vital signs? Wouldn’t it be even better if you could get a wearable for your pet that does both jobs?
Introducing MyPetGo – the next generation of Pet Health Tracker, and the first multi-purpose wearable that allows you to be on top of all aspects of your pets health; from monitoring activity and location, to detecting and preventing health issues.
MyPetGo, a powerful and accurate health and location monitor for dogs and cats, is founded on the belief that all pets deserve to live healthier, happier and better lives, MyPetGo has created the world’s most advanced pet health monitor and first-of-its-kind pet health ecosystem. By harnessing the power of innovative and revolutionary technology, MyPetGo truly gives your pet a voice.
The heavy-duty yet lightweight (35g) wearable tracks a pet’s location, measures activity levels, detects behavioural patterns and records vital signs. The sophisticated AI-driven ecosystem is able to quickly detect irregularities in your pet’s data and immediately notifies you of any potential issues, along with actionable and preventive steps to improve your pet’s health and well-being. The app is available in 150 countries and also provides a marketplace for the best local pet service providers.
With triaged online and offline data, MyPetGo provides the insights and data driven nextstep recommendation to ensure your furkid lives a happy, healthy and long lasting life.
“As a pet parent, I’m blessed to have Cesar, my 8 year old maltese in my life as he is so much more than just a pet to me, he is family. As a technology entrepreneur and as a data-driven person, I really wanted to create a pet monitor that can leverage data in a meaningful way, combined with a next-step recommendation, linking up to a suitable service or product so that I can provide Cesar with unparalleled care and support, while also simplifying being a caretaker. With that in mind, MyPetGo was created for fur parents who want to become more responsible, to get peace of mind, stay on top of health values, location and to consolidate all pet chores in one place. We give your pet a voice to be able to communicate with you and really ‘explain’ what they are trying to say,” said Richard Nilsson, CEO and Founder of MyPetGo.
One of the most devastating moments for any pet owner is when a loved one goes missing or runs away (1 in 3 statistically will get lost or run away during their lifetime). And despite us doing our best to keep them safe, the situation is almost always out of our control. To make matters worse, we are then faced with limited platforms and support to try to find them.
And as our pets get older, they will face many illnesses and potentially life-threatening diseases which we wished we had been able to identify earlier, but unfortunately, unless the symptoms present themselves or our pets visit the vet frequently, we are often left in the dark until the very last minute.
On top of all that, the information and websites to book services, schedule appointments or to purchase dietary-specific or premium food and other consumer products are spread out, limited and time consuming to research and source.
With MyPetGo, all pet owners are able to have thorough access to all these facilities at their fingertips. MyPetGo offers the entire value chain of pet-care in one platform. The health and location technology tracks the location of your pet via Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and is able to monitor Heart Rate Variability (HRV) for any changes or abnormalities that could indicate pain, stress or underlying diseases.
The monitor also tracks calories burnt or gained to keep an eye on feeding goals. In-built sensors can also monitor body posture of your pet, which benchmarks data collected from your pet to identify abnormalities that signal pain from injuries.
MyPetGo package costs US$159 (S$225) and contains the monitor, a USB-C charging cable, a setup guide, and an adjustable and durable collar. The offering also includes a 30-day money-back guarantee, and a one year warranty. You can then choose the monthly, 1, 2 or 3-year plan which starts from US$6.99 per month. MyPetGo is available on iOS App Store, Google Play Store and Huawei App Gallery and currently, the monitor covers 150 countries worldwide.

Your pet’s health history will be uploaded and you can easily share it with vets/specialists and most importantly, insurance coverage and suitable health plans will be curated specifically for your pet. It is always important to consult with your veterinarian if you have concerns about your pet’s health. They can provide you with the best guidance on how to monitor and care for your pet.
