How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Cao Fila De Sao MiguelPicking a pet identification tag for your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel is like purchasing insurance – you do it with the hopes that you’re never going to need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual price” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is crucial, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively purchasing a collar tag just because it’s low cost or trendy usually proves to be foolish, in the long term.

Think about the following before purchasing any pet identification tag for your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel:
1.What is the level of risk to your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel?
Missing Cao Fila De Sao Miguels are very common – we’ve all noticed “Lost Cao Fila De Sao Miguel!” signs tacked around town, or deceased Cao Fila De Sao Miguels lying by the edge of the road. If your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel is a master at escaping your fence, or cannot resist tracking a smell, or youthful and full of energy, or is not well trained, the risk of a lost Cao Fila De Sao Miguel is high.

But losing your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel isn’t the only risk.

Some Cao Fila De Sao Miguels are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Rover or Fido in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog battles (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the risk to your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Cao Fila De Sao Miguel, especially if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster which leaves you incapable of caring for your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel.

In this instance, will your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel’s new or temporary steward know that Fifi hates cats, or requires medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that has more than your name and phone number would be very helpful.

2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Cao Fila De Sao Miguels are just more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet identification tag. Risk is proportional to value.

Keep in mind that there is more than one way to calculate the value of your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Cao Fila De Sao Miguel) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Cao Fila De Sao Miguel owners, the companionship attachment they have to their Cao Fila De Sao Miguel sets its value. For many, Cao Fila De Sao Miguels are family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.From your answers to the two previous queries, what do you need in a pet ID tag?

Pet ID tags come in varying materials, shapes and sizes and hold varying amounts of information. Some have artwork or logos, too. Most pet ID tags are meant to be hung from a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Cao Fila De Sao Miguel’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary types of tags can gotten from any veterinarian or pet store. They’re low cost however the amount of information they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, there are many more options of pet identification tags for your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the most recent entrants in the pet identification market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your Cao Fila De Sao Miguel’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which can hold 64MB of data (including complete diet and medical information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your veterinarian or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is severely limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
