    Each tag features a unique, scannable QR code and NFC capabilities, allowing instant access to a pet’s profile via a smartphone.

    This profile contains all the essential information about that particular pet.

    Ranging from the pet’s medical history and behaviour, to the owner’s contact details.

    Importantly, all the information is secure with customisable privacy settings.

    Briana Cowan, Co-Founder of Paw Xplore, says their goal is to blend their love of pets with the latest in pet care technology.

    “At Paw Xplore, we prioritise pet safety and a quick reunion should a pet go missing,” Cowan says.

    “The Paw Xplore tag empowers both the pet and finder with information for a seamless reunion with the owner, alleviating the anxiety of separation.”

    Pet safety product that’s advancing pet care technology

    The smart dog tag includes the ability to send GPS coordinates to the owner when a pet is found.

    When the finder scans the tag and calls the owner, they can also learn crucial care information about the animal.

    “This includes the pets health, any medication they are on, and how to comfort them,” says Cowan.

    “With 20% of dogs over 10 being on medication for diabetes or heart conditions, it can be vital information.

    “It can be a very anxious time for a pet and their owner, so Paw Xplore tags are designed to ease the anxiety.

    “(by) empowering both the pet and finder with information for a seamless reunion with the owner.”
