HOW IT WORKS


To truly revolutionize pet nutrition, we couldn’t just make better food, we needed to innovate the entire process. From the data influencing the ingredients of the food, to the consumer experience of how the food is delivered, we have developed a Smart Nutrition System that creates a specific formula designed for your pet, based on real and dynamic data, that evolves as your pet's needs do.

OUR PRODUCTS

Cutting-edge technology parallel to human activity tracking wearables, our tracker was designed with your pet’s needs and comfort in mind. Sleek, durable and comfortable.

Be gone bulky activity trackers of the past! This SMART Tracker will monitor activity and rest, providing insight into your pet’s lifestyle and unique behavior in a compact, lightweight form factor that clips easily to your pet's existing collar.

 

The SMART Bowl acts as a central hub, connecting via Bluetooth to the SMART Tracker. The SMART Bowl tracks in detail your pet's eating habits. Featuring a built-in and high-precision scale, it is able to measure when, how much, how often, and how quickly your pet is eating.

This data allows our algorithms to monitor and detect changes to your dog or cat’s eating behaviors, alerting us to any potential issues. 

 

 

Each month we deliver food that is personalized to your pet's needs, so as their needs evolve, so will their food. Our recipes use organic, human-grade, all-natural and responsibly sourced ingredients.  

  • Tailored to the needs or your dog or cat. Have an energetic puppy? We will provide you with customized pet food containing more calories and healthy proteins that their body needs, as well as fats for quick energy. Have a lethargic adult cat? We’ll make sure your cat’s food contains enough vitamins and minerals to support the vital systems as well as make your pet feel full and satisfied without gaining extra weight. The system automatically adjusts on a monthly basis to your pets needs, tracking trends and referencing their historic data.
  • 100% transparency of pet nutrition. You’ll know exactly what goes into your pet’s food each month, how it changes based on your pet’s needs, and why we chose the nutritional profile we did for each batch of food we deliver. 

Created by a team of veterinarians, food scientists and data scientists, the Intelligent Nutrition Algorithm, or INA, is the brains behind our operations. It turns the data collected by the collar and bowl into a customized recipe for your pet's food. We’ll do all the work of collecting and interpreting the data, then create and deliver the food to your door.

Your pet’s data is continuously compared to other pets in the system to provide a baseline for what to expect for your pet. The algorithm is continuously learning, becoming more intelligent over time and learning more about your pet and their needs.

 

 

The power of our system is at your fingertips. Easily review your pet’s activity through simple charts, graphs, and health goal metrics. Completely control your PetMio pet food shipments conveniently from your phone. 

WHY PETMIO IS DIFFERENT

Organic pet food is already available on the market, and so are pet activity trackers; but these existing products fall short on providing the personalized nutrition your pet needs while delivering a real solution that makes our lives easier.

Our approach is to develop an ecosystem where technology and food work together. Our goal is to provide a more personalized product for our pets and a better experience for the pet parents. With this approach we are bridging the gap between having information about your pet’s well-being and being able to do something about it.

Kickstarter Reward Tiers

Monthly Food Price Ranges After 1st FREE Month 

After your trial month you’ll be able to continue your monthly food subscription via the mobile app. Ongoing prices will vary for each pet depending on their weight and specific nutritional needs. The table below shows a range on what monthly prices are expected to be at per pet category. As our company grows, our goal is to continue to lower prices to make personalized nutrition more accessible to more people. However, our food quality standards will never be compromised. High quality, nutrition rich food is essential to the success of PetMio.

TEAM

We assembled our team to include experts in all fields: veterinarians, product developers, data engineers, and food scientists - all of them pet lovers. We put in a lot of time, effort and research into PetMio to create a real solution for pet parents.

Risks and challenges

Over the past year and a half, we have worked hard to get to this stage of PetMio. Our biggest motivation is delivering a holistic solution that will make a significant difference to you and your pets, by providing high quality, tailored nutrition in a way that’s easy for you to use and manage. Our number one priority is to fulfill our promise to you, our backers.

We know that to ensure our success it wasn’t just a matter of effort but also bringing together subject matter experts who have done this before. Which is why we’ve assembled the team we have today. They're an experienced mix of hardware engineers, data scientists, software engineers, food scientists, veterinarians, marketers, and others with a successful track record of developing and launching products for some of the most respected global consumer brands, as well as being pet-lovers themselves.

We have continually tested and improved both our software and hardware, making adjustments to the technology powering our system so that it is the best that it can be. This includes our robust Intelligent Nutrition Algorithm or INA, which has been created by our team of food and data scientists and veterinarians, that is continuously learning about your pet’s needs.

For our pet food, we have partnerships in place with proven high-quality food ingredient suppliers to provide us with organic, all-natural and human-grade ingredients that are responsibly sourced. On the hardware side, we have partnered with a leading technology supplier that is already developing advanced human wearable and other IoT technologies for large companies globally.

Although this isn’t our team’s first rodeo, possible delays can still occur due to unforeseen circumstances during manufacturing. In addition, we’ve set an extremely high standard for every element of our system. Not meeting your (and our) expectations is simply not an option. Your pets are family and they deserve the best, nothing less.

We promise to communicate with our backers on a regular basis and keep you informed of our progress. Should an unexpected issue arise, we vow to work tirelessly to ensure it has a minimal impact on the speed and quality of our delivery to you.
