Tattoos: Tattooing is a permanent ID that involves marking a ID code, usually on the belly or inside of a leg on dogs, or the ear of any pet. This is sometimes done under anesthesia while the pet is already under for another procedure, otherwise a sedative and numbing agent are used.

USB: Waterproof USB Drives can be clipped on to the collar of your pet and all of your information is there for anyone to plug in and help you find your beloved pet.

Microchips: Each microchip contains an electromagnetic transponder and is given a unique code that is registered with a recovery program. A scanner is needed to read the codes. The microchip is injected under the skin near the neck and between the shoulders. You register your pet’s information into an online database and any vet or pound, or shelter can find out who you are in a matter of minutes.
