If you are reading this before your pet is lost, then adhere to the wise saying an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Having multiple forms of identification on your pet is key to a rapid return. Microchipping is an internal identification where your contact information will be tied to the microchip’s unique ID code. If your pet becomes lost, veterinarians and shelters can use a microchip scanner to find out how to contact you. Name tags are also an excellent way to ID your dog. Did you know Johnston Animal Hospital sells personalized name tags? Stop by today to purchase a custom tag that will be mailed to you. Also, your pet’s Rabies tag can serve as a form of ID. Be sure you are placing the Rabies tag provided by Johnston Animal Hospital on your pet’s collar. The Rabies tag number is linked directly to your pet and can be used to identify your pet if it is ever lost.
