Today’s Tip: QR ID tags smart alternative
Technology and convention have collided to create a new type of ID tag. The QR (Quick Response) ID tag takes conventional ID tags up a notch and may be a good alternative to microchipping. Like other tags, it can be lost, but the advantage of the tag is that anyone with a Smartphone can scan it, so there is no need to take a found dog to a vet or shelter to be scanned for a chip.
These tags have a QR code on them; those funny little black and white square codes that can be scanned with a Smartphone to access a host of information. They help to quickly and positively identify your pet unlike other tags. Conventional tags only allow so many characters for information like pet’s name, address and phone number. On QR tags, the information is not limited to what is physically on a tag. Each tag has its own web address where you control the information. You can include multiple contact numbers, information about your pet’s health, vet contact and more. You decide what information you want to be visible.
A QR tag allows you to update your pet’s info from anywhere, and they have a web address on the back so someone without a Smartphone can still access the information via computer or tablet. There are several companies selling the QR tags.
FurCode. If your dog’s tags are always rubbing, FurCode also offers collars with slide on QR codes.
PetQRTag. This company offers several different tag shapes.
QRPet Tracker. This company offers GPS tracking with their tag, so you will receive approximate GPS coordinates and a Google Map link of where your pet’s QR tag was scanned. This service is free for one year, and then renewable with a small fee for each additional year.
There are other companies who sell the tags in various materials and shapes. A Google search will give you several to choose from.
The lost and found pets that appear in this article want to be reunited with their families. If you see a pet is missing from your area, please keep on the lookout, and please continue to share with your friends.
