Choosing a Pet Identification Tag for The Norrbottenspets

How to Pick an ID Tag for Your NorrbottenspetsBuying a pet ID tag for your Norrbottenspets is like purchasing insurance – you do it with the devout wish that you’ll never use it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “real price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take 5 minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively buying a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or pretty usually ends up being foolish, in the long term.

Think about this before picking any pet identification tag for your Norrbottenspets:
1.What is the level of risk to your Norrbottenspets?
Lost Norrbottenspetss are definitely common – we have all come across “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or deceased Norrbottenspetss lying along the edge of the road. If your Norrbottenspets is a pro at breaking through your fence, or can’t resist tracking a scent, or youthful and spry, or isn’t properly trained, the chance of a missing Norrbottenspets is high.

But losing your Norrbottenspets isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Norrbottenspetss get stolen. A pet thief may take Fifi or Fido in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit battles (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the risk to your Norrbottenspets if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Norrbottenspets, particularly if you live by yourself or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Norrbottenspets, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that renders you unable to care for your Norrbottenspets.

In this case, will your Norrbottenspets’s new or temporary caregiver know that Fido hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that has more than your phone number and name would be extremely beneficial.

2.What level of risk are you ok with?
Some Norrbottenspetss are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive kind of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there are multiple ways to assess the value of your Norrbottenspets. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Norrbottenspets) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Norrbottenspets owners, the emotional attachment they have with their Norrbottenspets determines its value. For many owners, Norrbottenspetss are family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Using your responses to the two previous queries, what do you require of a pet ID tag?

Pet identification tags come in varying shapes, sizes and materials and hold varying amounts of info. Some contain artwork or logos, as well. Many pet ID tags are designed to be hung from a collar.

At the minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Norrbottenspets’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 kinds of tags can gotten from any vet or pet store. They’re cheap yet the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, you have many more options for pet ID tags for your Norrbottenspets these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the newer entrants in the pet ID game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your Norrbottenspets’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive 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 automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is small, due to bluetooth technological limits.
