When it comes to pet parenting, you know there’s no such thing as being overprotective. Leash? Check. Collar? Check. Microchip and tag? Check and check.
At Publix we understand that protecting your furbabies is always top priority, which is why we’re excited to help you celebrate Every Day is Tag Day on the first Saturday of April. It’s a day to get informed about pet safety, so you can ensure they’ll always make it home to you. Of course, tags aren’t the only way you can help protect your pets. Here are some steps you can take to keep them safe and sound.
Step 1: Tags
Tags aren’t just something you use on social media, they’re an important identifier for your pet. If you’re taking your pet outside, you should always make sure they have their tag on. But it’s also a good idea to have them wear it inside as well. That way, if they get out without your knowledge, it will be easier for someone to identify its owner.
Step 2: Collars
What’s the point in having a tag if you don’t have a stylish way to display it? Collars from the Publix Pet Aisle not only up your pet’s fashion level, they provide an alert to passersby that your pet has a home and an owner who cares. This is particularly important if your pet happens to be out on its own.
Step 3: Microchip
Microchipping your pet should always be your first priority. While it does not serve as a tracker for your pet, a chip can make the recovery process much simpler once your pet has been found. Make sure you register the microchip with a national pet-recovery database, so if you ever relocate or change your phone number you can easily update your information.
