  • If your lost pet has veterinarian rabies tags on his collar, the person finding the animal should automatically call your veterinarian…..so notify your vet your pet is lost
  • After you have been reunited with your pet we suggest that you have the ID “Chip” placed in your animal.  This is a relatively new program, and every veterinarian can do this.  Every veterinarian and animal shelter has the “readers” to give instant information as to the owner of the animal.  A great investment when you love your pet!
