How to Pick an ID Tag for Your MucuchiesPicking a pet identification tag for your Mucuchies is like buying an insurance policy – you do it with the devout wish 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 think it through. Whimsically buying a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or trendy often proves to be unwise, long-term.

Think about the following before buying any pet id tag for your Mucuchies:
1.What is the level of risk to your Mucuchies?
Lost Mucuchiess are certainly common – we’ve all come across “Lost Mucuchies!” signs setup around the city, or deceased dogs lying on the side of the road. If your Mucuchies is a master at jumping the fence, or cannot resist following a smell, or youthful and energetic, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a missing Mucuchies is high.

But losing your Mucuchies isn’t the only risk.

Some Mucuchiess get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fido or Fifi in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Mucuchies if something were to happen to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Mucuchies, especially if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a disaster or tragedy which renders you unable to care for your Mucuchies.

In this case, will your Mucuchies’s temporary or new steward know that Fido hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that has more than your phone number and name would be very beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you ok with?
Some Mucuchiess are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet warrants a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Note that there are several ways to determine the value of your Mucuchies. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Mucuchies) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Mucuchies owners, the sentimental attachment they have with their companion sets its value. For many, Mucuchiess are members of the family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

Pet ID tags come in varying materials, shapes and sizes and hold varying amounts of information. Some have artwork or logos, also. Usually pet ID 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 Mucuchies’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These customary types of tags can purchased from any veterinarian or pet store. They’re inexpensive yet the amount of info they can contain is limited to the size of the tag.

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

One of the newest entrants in the pet identification market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your Mucuchies’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into 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 severely limited, due to bluetooth technological limits.
