Choosing a Pet ID Tag for The Rajapalayam

How to Pick an ID Tag for Your RajapalayamBuying a pet ID tag for your Rajapalayam is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do so with the hopes that you’ll never need it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively purchasing a collar tag just because it’s cheap or trendy often proves to be a regret, in the long term.

Consider this before purchasing any pet id tag for your Rajapalayam:
1.What is the level of risk to your Rajapalayam?
Missing Rajapalayams are very common – we’ve all seen “Lost Rajapalayam!” signs tacked around the city, or deceased Rajapalayams lying along the side of the road. If your Rajapalayam is a master at breaking through your fence, or cannot help following a smell, or youthful and spry, or is not properly trained, the chance of a lost Rajapalayam is high.

But losing your Rajapalayam isn’t the only danger.

Sometimes Rajapalayams get stolen. A pet thief may steal Fido or Fifi hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in pit battles (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the danger to your Rajapalayam if something happens to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Rajapalayam, particularly if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be struck by disaster or tragedy which renders you incapable of caring for your Rajapalayam.

In this case, will your Rajapalayam’s new or temporary caretaker know that Fido hates cats, or requires medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your name and phone number would be extremely helpful.

2.What amount of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Rajapalayams are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet demands a specific, higher priced kind of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there is more than one way to determine the value of your Rajapalayam. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Rajapalayam) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Rajapalayam owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many owners, Rajapalayams are like family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Using your answers to the two previous questions, what do you need in a pet identification tag?

Pet ID tags come in varying materials, shapes and sizes and can contain varying amounts of info. Some have logos or artwork, too. Usually pet identification tags are meant to be hung from a collar.

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

Fortunately, there are many more options of pet identification tags for your Rajapalayam these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the newer entries in the pet identification game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive medical and diet information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your veterinarian or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is low, because of bluetooth technological limits.
