Is your dog carrying proper ID? July is National Lost Pet Prevention Month. We don’t want any pets to get lost and not find their home again. Reminders are good, because humans get busy and sometimes forget the simple stuff that could really help us pets out.
Fur doesn’t have pockets, and when is the last time your dog took her handbag along on a walk? The only thing most of us pups wear are collars or harnesses, so that is where the ID should be attached. Why stop with just an ID tag. What happens if you are naked when you go missing, heaven forbid? The microchip is a great back up ID for dogs.
I have my driver’s license, but it usually stays in the car because I have no way to carry it. Remember to keep your dogs information current, just like you keep yours current on your license. If you move, change your information on your pup’s tags and on their microchip service. How sad would it be if your pup was found, but the information was wrong?
Check your pet’s tags every day when you put their collar on to make sure the information is still readable, and correct, and that the tags are secure on the collar. We’ve all lost tags before, or had the information worn off. We love our Silver Paw Pet Tags because the engraving never wears off! Make sure your microchip is checked by your vet every time you go to the clinic too. Is your dog carrying proper ID? We sure hope so! We are thankful Mom does her best to keep us ID’d just in case we ever get separated.
