If your dog doesn’t have proper ID, now’s the time to do it! Here are some common ways to ensure you and your lost pet will be safely united:

• Tatoos – Supervised by a veterinarian, and registered with the National Dog Registry, is one of the oldest pet tattoo registries. Most importantly, register! An unregistered tattoo is untraceable.
• Michrochipping – Performed and registered by a veterinarian, a tiny transponder that uses radio waves to transmit your dog’s information is placed between his shoulder blades.
• QR Tags – If you’re using a simple ID tag on a collar, a QR bar code can be engraved onto the tag with a laser. When your pet is found, a simple scan with a smartphone identifies your dog.
