Heyrex Revolutionises Round-the-clock Petcare

Changing the way dogs communicate with their owners

Ever wondered what man’s best friend gets up to when your back’s turned - scratching, barking or pining for your return? Now, there’s a groundbreaking, clever new product available on the market that can tell you all this and more – potentially benefiting the 700,000 dogs living in New Zealand!

Designed by Kiwis and made in New Zealand, Heyrex is a truly revolutionary health-monitoring tool that watches over your dog 24/7 – teaching dog owners new tricks by helping address serious, life threatening problems that may otherwise go unnoticed.

No matter what time of day it is, Heyrex observes a dog’s behaviour, so caring dog owners feel reassured about their beloved hounds, around-the-clock.  This innovative device can help identify many dog health conditions, including degenerative joint disease, cardiac conditions and behavioural disorders.

A small monitor fits comfortably on the dog’s collar and wirelessly sends the dog’s daily behaviour back to the Heyrex server.  This information can then be accessed by the owner throughout the day, by logging on to the Heyrex website using a smartphone or computer.

As well as helping dedicated dog owners, Heyrex also allows vets to remotely monitor their patient’s treatment and behaviour within its home environment, from the confines of their clinic. 

Nathan Lawrence, CEO at Heyrex says: “After seven years of product development - Heyrex’s original inventor, David Gibson, sadly passed away in 2011 - we’re honoured to have finally been able to bring his vision to life.



“Unfortunately, in today’s fast paced world, a change in your dog’s behaviour can go unnoticed. That’s why we came up with Heyrex – it will keep a watchful eye on your dog at those times of the day you can’t be by its side.”

“There has never been a product like this before, we’re confident Heyrex will revolutionise the relationship people have with their dogs, helping to build a closer bond between them.

“Heyrex has the potential to identify numerous medical conditions that could otherwise go undetected – extending a dog’s life and changing it for the better!”

Heyrex is a world-first that takes the worry away from pet ownership, offering loving dog owners the chance to monitor the wellbeing of their pet, wherever they may be.

Heyrex is available to purchase from www.pet.co.nz. For more information and stockists, visit www.heyrex.com.
