You might sometimes wonder whether your pet gadget might actually be of any help someday or not, whether they are of any real use of not. The Whistle tracker monitors your dog’s health and activities while you’re away, sure, but it can also save their life.
In one potentially life threatening incident, a woman saved her pup’s life when she realised he wasn’t moving around as much as he usually did. Worried, she rushed back home to find her little pup all curled up and motionless. She soon discovered that a rattlesnake had bit the pup. After catching the rattlesnake she took him to the vet immediately, thus saving his life from the lethal venom of a rattlesnake.
