How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Cimarron UruguayoPicking a pet identification tag for your Cimarron Uruguayo is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the hopes that you’re never going to use it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “actual cost” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively picking a collar tag just because it’s low cost or trendy often ends up being unwise, in the long term.

Think about the following before picking any pet id tag for your Cimarron Uruguayo:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Cimarron Uruguayo?
Lost Cimarron Uruguayos are definitely common – we’ve all seen “Lost Cimarron Uruguayo!” signs tacked around the city, or deceased Cimarron Uruguayos lying on the side of the road. If your Cimarron Uruguayo is a pro at tunneling under your fence, or can’t help following a scent, or youthful and spry, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a lost Cimarron Uruguayo is high.

But losing your Cimarron Uruguayo isn’t the only danger.

Some Cimarron Uruguayos are stolen. A pet thief may steal Spot or Rover 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 for “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Cimarron Uruguayo if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Cimarron Uruguayo, especially if you live by yourself or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with little notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster which leaves you unable to care for your Cimarron Uruguayo.

In this case, will your Cimarron Uruguayo’s new or temporary steward know that Rover hates cats, or requires medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that has more than your phone number and name would be extremely helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Cimarron Uruguayos are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet warrants a specific, more expensive type of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

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

But for most Cimarron Uruguayo owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Cimarron Uruguayos are like family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Based on your answers to the two previous questions, what do you require of 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. Most pet identification tags are designed to be attached to a collar.

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

Luckily, you have many more options in pet ID tags for your Cimarron Uruguayo these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the most recent entrants in the pet ID game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which holds 64MB of data (including complete medical and diet information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy polymer case and can be used in any computer, where it is easily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, due to bluetooth technological limits.
