It can happen in a flash. Your beloved pet darts off, and despite your frantic calls, it continues to charge off into the distance. Perhaps it was frightened, or maybe it was chasing after a critter. No matter how your furry friend got loose, having a lost pet can be extremely frightening. Fortunately, there are a number of products available that can help pet owners recover their missing fur babies.
An ID Tag may be old school, but it's imperative to have one on your pet's collar at all times. It is especially important that your contact information be up-to-date and current. Too often, animal control personnel will try to call a number on a pet's identification tag, only to discover that it is no longer valid.
Have Your Pet Microchipped
A microchip won't help you to actually locate your pet, but if your wanderer should end up in a veterinarian's office or at animal control, it could be scanned for a microchip. And if the information on the chip is correct and up-to-date, they'll be able to contact you and reunite you with your pet.
Attach a Pet Tracker
If you have a dog or cat that manages to get away from you on a regular basis, or if you live out in the country where your pet is allowed to wander, you definitely should attach a pet tracker onto its collar. These trackers send GPS information to an app so that you can actually zero in on your pet's location. Some trackers can also be set to alert you if your pet should wander outside a set radius from your home.
Facial Recognition App
When your pet wanders off, you'll want to get the word out to as many people as possible. Today, there are apps that can send pictures of your pet to local rescues, vets and shelters so that they can be on the lookout for your dog or cat.
