Pet care through a new lens

Your pet’s behavior offers extraordinary, yet often hidden, insights into his or her well-being. By observing pets’ behavior and health histories with unprecedented detail and scale, we seek to detect previously unseen patterns that are early indicators of changes in well-being. We strive to provide pet owners and caregivers with groundbreaking insights to enable a new era of proactive, preventive care for pets.

We are asking dog owners to help us gather data that may improve the lives of all pets - and have fun in the process!
 Together, we’ll take pet care to a new level on our mission to help pets live healthier, happier lives.

FAQ & SUPPORT

PetProfile_Vertical_Jax_2.png

Am I eligible to join?
You are eligible to participate and receive Whistle FIT if your dog (or dogs) are currently enrolled in an Optimum Wellness Plan at Banfield and will consistently wear a collar your FIT can attach to (up to 1” wide). You also must have a home WiFi network (dual-band or 2.4 GHz) and an iOS device (at least iOS 10.0) or Android device (at least 5.0) to use your Whistle FIT. If you or your dog(s) do not meet those criteria, we’d still like to keep you involved in the project through our newsletter.


What will be expected of me as a participant?
By joining, our only expectation is that you use the provided Whistle FIT and the wellness services included in your Optimum Wellness Plan. There is no requirement for amount of time to use FIT, but consistently keeping your device charged and on your dog's collar will provide the most valuable information to you and our research team. Every day counts, and we hope that you’ll want to use FIT to stay connected to your best friend forever!


What do I need to enroll?
You’ll only need your Banfield client ID to join, which can be found on your invitation email, any invoice or treatment summary from Banfield, and your profile on the MyBanfield online portal. We'll also ask your permission to allow Banfield to share your dog's health records with the Pet Insight Project research team so we can explore connections between behavior and well-being.
