ST. LOUIS, September 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nestlé Purina Petcare launches Petivity™ Smart Litterbox System, a smartphone app and litter monitor that captures and transforms behavioral data into actionable insights that help owners care for their cat proactively. The smart monitor helps owners provide a new standard of care for their cats by using artificial intelligence to learn each cat’s unique litter box patterns and identify subtle but significant changes in weight, frequency, type of waste and disposal schedule.

“The Petivity Smart Litterbox System allows cat owners to get personalized insight into their cat’s litter box usage,” said Dr. Avi Shaprut, DVM, Purina veterinarian. “While the device is not intended to diagnose, treat, mitigate or cure any condition, it can help detect changes that may be early signs of health issues such as diabetes, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, urinary tract infections and obesity, enabling cat owners to proactively seek veterinary care earlier and unlock better outcomes.”

How it works

Using artificial intelligence developed by a team of Purina pet and data experts, the Petivity Smart Litterbox system detects significant changes that indicate health conditions that may require veterinary attention or diagnosis. The monitor, which users must place under every litter box in the home, collects accurate data on each cat’s weight and important litter box habits to help owners be proactive about their pet’s health.

When a change requires the owner’s attention, the system automatically alerts the owner through the Petivity smartphone app, available on iPhone and Android devices.

Who can use the Petivity Smart Litterbox System

Any cat owner can benefit from using the Petivity Smart Litterbox Monitor system in their home, especially those who are concerned about their cat’s health or want to be proactive about their cat’s care and well-being. The system may also be useful to owners monitoring cats with previously diagnosed conditions and owners monitoring their cats’ weight loss or gain as part of a weight management program.

“The Petivity Litter Box System can be used in households with up to three cats and with most standard litter and litter box sizes,” Dr. Shaprut said. “In addition to receiving alerts on the Petivity app, cat owners also receive frequent information reports through email alerts for each Petivity Smart Litterbox system in the home with explanations and tips. to manage the welfare of their cat.”

With the Petivity Smart Litterbox System, cat lovers can take a proactive role in their pet’s lifelong health through smarter care, keeping people and pets together longer.
