Melbourne start-up Ilume is shaping the future of pet health using new technologies such as a smart bowl, collar tracker, and an app.

Ilume provides personalised dog meals to owners created in its commercial kitchen in Keysborough and will use fresh, human-grade, locally sourced produce led by culinary directory Gary Sauer.

An app monitors a dog’s vital information such as daily activity, sleep habits, and even poo habits. Once that information is gathered, Ilume then personalises meals based on the dog’s unique requirements.

Gary Silbury, CEO and Co-founder of Ilume, created the company as he wanted to feed his two dogs something better.

“Ilume is a game-changer for pet owners by empowering them with the knowledge, the technology and the restaurant-quality food that is scientifically proven to deliver a happier and healthier life for our beloved four-legged friends.

“We’re using real science and data to formulate our Ilume recipes and health insights, and we are going even further by investing millions of dollars into clinical studies with two renowned Australian and New Zealand universities to shape the future of pet health.”

Personalised meal plans start at $12 a day.
