This week is National Pet ID Week. Celebrate by ensuring that your animals all have tags and microchips with updated information. Tags should include:
- Pet's name
- Owner's name and address
- Telephone numbers (day and evening)
- Any medical problem requiring medication (may require separate tag)
Call your microchip company and ensure that you information is up to date and ask them to send a new microchip tag if you don't have one. This is important because if you are unavailable by phone, someone could easily contact the microchip company. Be sure that your pet is always wearing identification.
