THE PROBLEM: Equine Distress
Nearly 40% of the estimated 9.2 million horses in the United States are used for performance (ie, racing and showing), which means more than 3.5 million horses are at increased risk for developing colic, getting cast, or experiencing other forms of distress. Unfortunately, signs of distress can be elusive and transient, and often occur overnight or at remote locations when/where caretakers are not present resulting in delayed intervention. Delayed intervention is a negative prognostic factor that has dire impact on survival and quality of life outcomes.
To address this problem Protequus has developed NIGHTWATCH®, a revolutionary smart halter/collar that remotely monitors horses and alerts caretakers via text, phone call, and/or email for early intervention when danger/distress is detected. NIGHTWATCH® removes all guesswork by acquiring, analyzing, and presenting empirical evidence of equine distress & wellness.
