    Advice on Pet Tags

    Pet tags are used to identify a missing animal. If your pet should ever wander off where it shouldn’t, a pet name tag could be just the thing that brings it home. Engraved pet tags detail information about the pet and where it belongs. This means whoever finds it can use the pet tag info and get it back safely to you. However, there are a number of considerations to think about when choosing a pet name tag. For a guide to choosing pet dog tags or a pet tag in general, see the following advice.

     

     

     

     

    •    First of all, it is important to choose a pet tag that you know is durable and made from material that will withstand all conditions and terrain. All pets get themselves into messy situations, so you need to be confident that pet dog tags can survive all circumstances. Plastic or metal pet tags are generally acceptable. However, a stainless steel pet name tag is probably of the highest quality, and will last the longest.

    •    Now, think about how the pet tag will look on your pet. There are many choices of colour, shape and size avalable. Make sure the one you choose matches the collar of your pet, as a clashing one could make your animal look bad.

    •    Consider buying a pet tag that is reflective so that it shows up at night time. These are particularly important for cats that roam about at night in busy areas.

    •    Choose engraved pet tags that are easy to read quickly. Certain animals may not make it simple for a stranger to see the tag, so the easier it is to see, the better. The letters should show up clearly against the background.

    •    Decide on the information that you have displayed on the pet tag. Some people prefer not to give too many personal details on them for security reasons. The pet’s name and your phone number should normally be enough. However, some owners also have their address engraved.
