- Do you know the BP of your pet?
We all know that blood pressure is the driving force of the circulatory system in the living body. Pets are actually like humans, and abnormally high or low blood pressure may represent a problem with health.
As pets age, they become more prone to high blood pressure or other complications.
Therefore, regular blood pressure screening is the best preventive health care for pets.
- Why is your pet’s blood pressure important?
Early diagnosis and prevention of hypertension or hypotension-related diseases.
Avoid complications caused by persistent hypertension or hypotension.
Let the veterinarian assess the effectiveness of the relevant treatment.
- Clinical symptoms of hypertension
Eyes: Eyeball bleeding, retinal detachment or atrophy, retinal edema, retinal vasculitis, sudden blindness
Nerve/brain: cerebral vascular hemorrhage, cerebral edema, confusion, epilepsy
Kidney: Kidney spheroid and interstitial tubular ischemia, necrosis, atrophy and deterioration into proteinuria; increase the incidence of uremia and increase the mortality of chronic kidney disease
Heart: Systolic heart murmur, galloping rhythm, left ventricular hypertrophy
- Clinical symptoms of hypotension
acute cardiac tamponade
Blood in urine
- Potential crisis of high blood pressure – cat
Because the cat has a high tolerance to the disease, the symptoms of hypertension are not obvious. Therefore, we often find that cats suffer from high blood pressure when the cat’s blood flows to the eyes or the retina and causes blindness.
Whether it is surgery for humans or animals, monitoring of anesthesia is one of the most common and important issues. There are quite a lot of complications due to poor anesthesia, such as kidney failure, liver failure, behavior/sense change, blindness in both eyes, and so on.
It is estimated that the probability of a pet’s death from anesthesia during surgery is 1/1000, which is much higher than the human’s 1:250000.
A more common problem in anesthesia is hypotension.
Its occurrence may represent excessive anesthesia, excessive peripheral vasodilation, decreased cardiac output, and low blood volume problems. In addition, the mean arterial pressure(MAP) represents the mean value of arterial blood pressure in each cardiac cycle and is the average pressure of blood between cycles.
Ideally, the mean arterial pressure(MAP) must be greater than 70 mm Hg, and the systolic arterial pressure(SYS) must be greater than 100 mm Hg to provide good tissue perfusion.
Unlike humans, high blood pressure in dogs and cats is often secondary to certain diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease or endocrine disease.
High blood pressure in dogs and cats may cause symptoms of the eyes or nerves, such as sudden invisibility, anterior chamber bleeding, epilepsy or loss of consciousness; and low blood pressure may make the pet weak and incompetent.
Prevention is always better than cure. It is definitely helpful to check your pet’s blood pressure early.
When a pet has symptoms of high blood pressure, veterinarians usually use antihypertensive drugs to lower blood pressure. There are considerable differences between different pets in response to antihypertensive drugs. For example, for some cats, it may take some time to stabilize blood pressure.
Therefore, blood pressure should be measured intensively in order to confirm the therapeutic effect. Prevention of complications such as blindness and kidney disease can be quite helpful if blood pressure can be monitored frequently and accurately.
- Best market experience and clinical validation
Our blood pressure monitoring technology has been popular in the human medical market for more than a decade, and the birth of pettrust is derived from our accumulated market experience. When our team enters the pet medical market, we immediately knew that only through clinical trials can we guarantee the accuracy of the product and give patients a safe and comfortable experience.
Therefore, with the efforts of the pettrust team, through our extensive clinical testing, each of our designs is designed for a better clinical experience. Because pettrust has these capabilities, it can help veterinarians work more efficiently and also provide better care for pets.
- Cycle Mode
This is an automatic cycle measurement mode
The user can set the cycle interval (one minute to two hours) according to the requirements, and pettrust will automatically perform periodic blood pressure measurement according to the set time.
When the vet is operating surgery, pettrust can automatically provide blood pressure parameters to the veterinarian.
- Clinical alert settings
You can set the alarm value of the blood pressure parameter by yourself. When the measured value exceeds the parameter you set. Pettrust will automatically sound an alarm to let you know that there is an abnormal condition so that you can handle it immediately.
The pettrust research team developed a unique animal vital signal acquisition system. Through this system, the veterinarian can judge the credibility of blood pressure values and master more vital signal information of animals.

Laser Therapy is a treatment that uses a specific wavelength of light to illuminate the wound tissue of the body. It usually uses red or near-infrared light to reduce inflammation and reduce pain.
Laser Therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was certified by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, painless, drug-free treatment that does not require surgery. Through the interaction of cells and lasers, the metabolism of body tissues is gets enhanced, and the cells will be stimulated to accelerate the production of ATP, thereby allowing the body tissues to obtain more nutrients and achieve self-repair.
During each laser therapy, the cells absorb the energy of the laser, making the blood circulation faster, allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach the damaged tissue area more quickly. This not only creates a good repair environment for the body tissue, but also relaxes the blood vessels, reducing inflammation, reducing swelling, improving muscle spasms and stiffness, and alleviating musculoskeletal pain.
