It's Nat'l Pet ID Week – April 18-24.
• Take a picture of your pet and make sure you have a current image on your computer or at any of the following places: Flickr, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Dogster or any of the many photo/file sharing sites. You may also want to have one put in your pet's chart at the vet's office.
• Microchip your pet. Any vet's office will do it. It's cheap and is a great way to permanently ID your pet.
• Make a contact list for your pet. This is a list of names, phone numbers, email and addresses of people that know you and your pet well.
• Register with a pet ID and recovery service.
Visit Dogster.com for more information. They also have a coupon for $3 off the "Together Tag", which is in partnership with the American Red Cross. We are currently enrolled with the American Kennel Club's Companion Animal Recovery.
I hope that none of us ever have to use these programs, but it's a great idea to have in case of an emergency. Let's keep our pets safe!
