Monitoring Your Horse’s Health with Your Smartphone

Nowadays, it seems like everything has entered the digital age – everything is “smart” – TVs, phones, cars, and the list goes on and on. Many of these things have had tremendous impact on our health and that of our animals, especially our horses. A new wearable device for horses will send an email to their owner of veterinarian when the equine is not feeling well, according to Horse Talk.

Similar to the wrist bands or gym fitness straps that people use, the Canadian developed SeeHorse wearable collects a horse’s vital signs and sends that information to a smart phone or other device, alerting owners, veterinarians or others when something is not quite right. SeeHorse tracks a horse’s temperature, pulse, and respiratory (TPR) functions and builds in-depth daily and long-term reports and analysis of the animal’s activity. This helps owners and others working with horses keep a close eye on their health and fitness levels, as well as managing conditioning and preparation for competition.

At Deer Creek Structures, we couldn’t be more thrilled with this technological advancement. Like humans, horses are complicated creatures and sometimes it’s tough to tell if the beautiful beast is ill or not. With SeeHorse, we have an easier time taking care of our horses and making sure they are in tiptop shape at all times, just like God has intended – remember, we are the caretakers of this earth and everything in it. If technology helps us in this endeavor, all the better!
