Illness & Early Signs

Co-Jack was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, hence the 12k Bark Pts of activity. The veterinary behaviorist prescribed anxiety meds, and advised us to continue using our FitBark to monitor his improvement. 🙂 . Thank you for all your help and your part in supporting such a lovely product! As I've said before, it's been a real life saver in managing my dog's exercise data, and consequently his behavior!

I love knowing if my dog needs more playtime. With a dachshund you need to make sure that they stay fit to combat spine injuries. With the FitBark I have peace of mind knowing that I am doing all I can to fight that. The app tracks play and active time and it makes it easy to see if we need to go for a longer walk.

When I got up this morning, I opened the FitBark app and noticed that Ruby was up in the night as her sleep score was low. I checked her ears and what do you know? Her chronic ear infection was back.

You have given us a tool to help improve Tequila's heart failure. By measuring her activity we have quantifiable proof that she has not worsened over the last 14 months!!! Her heart doctor had only given her that long to live with medication alone. Thank you so much!!!

You can tell Nelson's getting closer to his surgery day as he's moving less because his shoulders hurt more ? But on a good note, FitBark has been awesome to see his change in activity because of it ??

Changed Pippie’s life I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day.

Changed Pippie’s life

I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day. If she hasn’t her activity levels are way down and her rest is way up. Last week I even got an alert that “Pippie is resting more than normal, is she ok?” She had already had her medication that day so, I made an appointment with our Vet and showed her the Fitbark app and Pippie’s play and rest times. First, my Vet asked where he could get one and I also showed him how I could share Pippie’s information with him to help keep an eye on her. He adjusted her medication and my girl is back up to her normal playful self. Pippie loves Fitbark, thank you!!!

We don't talk about it much but FitBark monitors sleep too. And a big change in sleeping habits is nearly always an indicator of illness. Last year, it was noticing the uptick in sleeping hours, that got our pup to the vet sooner rather than later. For most of us there's a huge chunk of time when we're not with our furry friends. FitBark helps fill in that missing information.

I'm actually using it to help find a comfort zone of exercise without making her suffer during the night. She has pleural effusion and arthritis. Too much exercise and she coughs too much for the rest of the day.

My Lily~pad had been dealing w some skin issues so she had to go back to the vet today. He put her on more antibiotics & a steroid. Since she has a FitBark, I'll be able to tell if the steroid is keeping her awake at night & how her activity levels in general may or may not be affected. I think that's pretty cool! These FitBarks allow us more insight to our dogs behavior & activity that we otherwise wouldn't know. ???

We have been using FitBark to to manage dogs with generalized anxiety along with a nutraceutical diet (Forza10 Behavioral or Armonia) and a correct therapy. We are delighted with the quality of FitBark's data and how easy it is to access the information we need to run our studies.
