An Emergency ID for Your Pet?
If you live an area that see’s hurricane action regularly or even just on occasion, and you happen to be a pet owner as well, then you’ll want to make sure that you take all the necessary precautions for the safety of yourself and of course your pet(s) too.
First, make sure that you get your pet whether it be a dog, a cat, a bunny, pig, or bird…to the vet for all of their shots and make sure that they’re in good working health. If they have a medical condition, you’ll want to use additional caution with their care.
An important item that is sometimes overlooked by pet owners is their pets’ ID tags. A pet ID tag is the first thing a person will look at it your dog is found missing or if they’re needing to know how to care for your dog if they’re dog sitting.
Pet ID tags are available nowadays in a variety of colors, materials and styles. They can be engraved to say your dogs name and will often include your phone number in most cases.
However, if your pet has a medical condition, a medical pet ID tag should accompany or be the the ID tag of choice for your pet.
Online retailers like StickyJ Medical ID sell emergency pet ID tags that they’ll custom engrave for your dog to read legibly and to last for a very long time. They’re made of surgical grade stainless steel so they won’t tarnish and can handle your dogs activities outside. You’ll find them in various shapes like hearts and dog bones, circles, and more. They can be engraved with multiple lines of text front and back, so if your animal has a lot of health issues and takes medicines or requires special instructions for their care, you’ll want to get them engraved.
Emergency pet ID’s are especially important if you and your pet need to go to a shelter or if your animal gets lost during a hurricane. This way, if it’s an emergency responder or even a complete shelter that comes into contact with your pet, they’ll know how to care for them.
