Picking a pet ID tag for your Slovak Cuvac is like buying insurance – you do so with the devout wish that you won’t use it. The “possible price” 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 crucial, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively choosing a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or cute often proves to be foolish, long-term.
Think about the following prior to purchasing any pet identification tag for your Slovak Cuvac:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Slovak Cuvac?
Lost Slovak Cuvacs are certainly common – we’ve all noticed “Lost Slovak Cuvac!” signs setup around town, or dead dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Slovak Cuvac is a master at escaping your fence, or cannot help following a smell, or young and spry, or isn’t well trained, the chance of a lost Slovak Cuvac is high.
But losing your Slovak Cuvac isn’t the only concern.
Some Slovak Cuvacs are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Rover or Fido hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in dog fights (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.
And what is the danger to your Slovak Cuvac if something were to happen to you, the owner?
If you’re a senior adult with a Slovak Cuvac, particularly 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 companion.
In this instance, will your Slovak Cuvac’s temporary or new caregiver know that Rover hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that has more than your name and phone number would be very beneficial.
2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Slovak Cuvacs are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal warrants a specific, more expensive kind of pet identification tag. Risk is proportional to value.
Keep in mind that there is more than one way to assess the value of your Slovak Cuvac. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Slovak Cuvac) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).
However for most Slovak Cuvac owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their companion sets its value. For many, Slovak Cuvacs are family members, dearly loved and impossible to replace.
3.Using your responses to the two previous queries, what do you require of a pet ID tag?
Pet identification tags come in various materials, shapes and sizes and can contain varying amounts of info. Some contain artwork or logos, as well. Usually pet ID tags are meant to be attached to a collar.
At the minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Slovak Cuvac’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are light but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These customary types of tags can gotten from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re inexpensive but the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.
Luckily, there are many more options in pet identification tags for your Slovak Cuvac these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.
One of the most recent entries in the pet identification market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which holds 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be used in any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your animal doctor or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is low, due to bluetooth technological limits.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Slovak Cuvacs
