Monitor your pet's health at home

Unlike humans, pets can not speak. They rely on us to learn their health conditions. Sometimes pets suffer more from diseases than humans because the sickness is not found timely until it gets severe. It’s helpful to monitor your pet’s vital signs and heart rhythms just in case your pet is ever in distress. You will be able to use these data as a baseline of what is “normal” for your pet in case of an accident or illness and even help your veterinarian diagnose on the visit. You may even choose to record and email these sounds to your vets in the App for a remote diagnosis.


Measure heart rate

Heart rate is one of the vital signs that reflects the health conditions. When your pet is on medication, the heart rate may help judge the effect of the treatment.


Check heart rhythm

Irregular heartbeat can be easily recognized by our ears. It may indicate some health conditions. Catching the abnormality can trigger diagnosis.


Detect heart murmurs

Heart murmur is a symptom that can be associated with heart diseases. You may either detect the murmur by yourself or ask your veterinarian to listen remotely.


Check breath

Respiratory rate is one of the vital signs too. You may count it through a Stemoscope placed firmly on your pet's chest. You may also check if the breath sounds are normal.

Detect your cat's fatal heart disease before it is too late

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM, enlarged heart muscle) is a very common disease in cats. It is the major cause of heart failure in cats. Most cats get this disease between the ages of 4 and 8. 55% of cats with HCM present with no symptoms at all. Cats are notoriously good at taking it easy on themselves, and they hide it when they don't feel well. Unfortunately, a fair number cats are discovered to have HCM when they present to the veterinarian already in congestive heart failure. An even more upsetting scenario is the discovery that a cat has HCM when it presents as an emergency with sudden painful hind limb paralysis. However, some abnormality can be detected with a stethoscope, such as a heart murmur and/or an abnormal rhythm.

Wearable strap makes the listening much easier

The Stemoscope Wearable Kit comes with a short and a long strap, suitable for small and big pet respectively. Wearing the Stemoscope on your pet with the strap can eliminate the noise induced by the frictions (hair rubbing) between the Stemoscope and the pet and let your hear very clean and clear sounds.
Some pets can get nervous when they see the veterinarian. It can be difficult for the veterinarian to listen to a nervous panting dog or purring cat. Record the sounds at home and play them to your veterinarian during the visit. Your veterinarian will be amazed by the superb sound quality!

Revel in the soothing sounds from your pet

Either a dog's or a cat's heartbeat sounds, or a cat's purring sounds, are very soothing and comforting. Why not simply tune in with your warm cuddly pet and relax yourself?
