We often think of technological advancements in terms of lifestyle improvements relating to humans. However, I recently read an article relating to technological advancements in relation to animals. Some of the points made in the article:

·         Drones protecting endangered species.

·         Improvements in animal/pet trackers/chips

·         Meat substitutes

·         Improved technology in medical advancements for animals

I would love to hear of any innovative ways that our Community may use their technology, devices or Smart home in relation to your pets?

    My company sponsored a wellness competition where the metric was the amount of steps you could do per week.  I have a dog, I had a Fitbit. Fitbit on dog collar = lots of steps credited to me...  Yup, I do love technology and animals..   ;)
    Great picture by the way @Ciaran

    Right now, I'm not using anything advanced for my two pets.
    I keep being targeted by a geolocation tracker for lost pets in the forest. Ironically, this always happens (with an Instagram ad) while I'm in the forest looking for my 2 dogs (who are not lost per say but I'm definitely chasing them). They love taking off to chase squirrels. I've not tried this yet, but am curios if anyone has any experience with Pet trackers! Perhaps I'll start up another thread on this.
