Newly developed patch to measure pet's stress

PuppyThere's a lot of talk about stressed out humans, and now a company in Japan reportedly claims it has a product that can tell if Tabby or Fido are wound a little to tightly.

The Nikkei (nee-kay) Weekly reports the firm, Medical Life Care Giken, has developed a paw patch that it says detects excessive sweat secretion, which is believed to be a sign of stress.

The round, pin-sized patch is applied to the center pad of the animal's paw and changes color depending on how sweaty the pet is.
