While we do our very best to keep a close eye on Fido, he tends to let curiosity get the best of him when engaging in an unsupervised stroll around the neighborhood. When this happens, you’ll be thankful that you just invested in that slightly-overpriced-but-irresistibly-cute dog collar, personalized ID tags, and microchip.
“ID tags can help with identification in case they get lost or run away,” said Dr. Stacy Eckman, a lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “It lets people know that the dog is owned and is very helpful when trying to reunite the animal with the owner.”
In addition to decorating your pets with ID tags, microchips have become an increasingly popular way to keep track of your pets in the case they go missing.
“Unlike a tag or a collar, it cannot come off and is placed under the skin with a small needle,” Eckman said. “It is not painful to the pet and they will not notice it, and neither will the owner in most instances.”
