ID Tags of the Future…Are Here Now

This week is National Pet ID Week. Here at PetHub, we think it’s high time to have a serious talk about identification tags and leaving the old “pet-name-and-one-phone-number” etched tags in the past. Today’s digital pet ID tags are not your grand-daddy’s dog tags. Pet identification tags have come a LONG way in just the last few years, folks, and if you’re still putting a $7 dollar circle of etched, one-name-and-number, aluminum on your dog or cat’s collar, your pets are missing out on powerful protection.  

Don’t Let Your Pet Run Around Naked!

When you pass another dog on your walk, or see a cat crossing the road, they are wearing a collar or harness with ID attached, right? If you saw that same pet lounging around on the couch, chances are they might be naked, or sans ID. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently found that only 33 percent of pet parents said they keep ID tags on their dogs and cats at all times. That means, at one point or another, the majority of pets aren’t wearing identification that can help get them home if the worst happens. This is a real problem folks.

Many pet parents and guests want to share the Thanksgiving feast with the dog. That can be a problem though because sometimes things on the table contain ingredients that are harmful to them. The best way to ensure that your dog will stay safe while enjoying the Thanksgiving festivities is to make them their own yummy Thanksgiving feast. When your guests arrive, politely ask that they do not feed any food from the dinner table or their plate to your dog.

4 Critical Pet Safety Things to Remember as Summer Turns to Autumn

I don't know about you, but Autumn has a way of creeping up on me.  I've been so used to the warm weather and the ample daylight, I'm always a little surprised that morning when I go out to walk the dogs and I not only need a jacket, but I also need a flashlight!  It's a sure sign that fall is coming, and winter is right around the corner. And for folks like us here in the Pacfic Northwest, that means that COLD weather can come fast and furious, and a pet parent needs to be prepared.  

Why Digital ID Tags

Why Microchips Aren’t Enough

Statics like these really scare us because we realize that the likelihood of one our pets going missing is quite high. Therefore, in the event of such a likely emergency we want our pets to be prepared with an ID tag with the best technology possible for getting them back home fast. Standard ID tags ONLY offer a name and phone number—and we want more comprehensive protection for our furry family members.
