What it is: Pet ID tag imprinted with QR code
Manufacturer: PetQRTag.com in Lawrenceville, GA
DogTipper Review: It’s great to be living in a time when so many wonderful pet products are being developed, when our technology-rich culture delivers a product that has the potential for making our pets’ lives safer and removes some of our worries as well. One such product is the PetQRTag which uses available QR technology to imprint a pet’s identification information which can be used to trace them if they are lost.
The great thing about the PetQRTag is that when you register your tag in the PetQRTag database, you can customize your pet’s profile yourself and can edit their profile anytime you want. Information embedded in the tag can then be scanned using free QR reader software on a smart phone or on a computer. Each tag is issued a unique web address when registered. The open source QR symbology used by the PetQRTag can be read by the vast majority of QR readers.
That little QR square of squiggles can hold a surprising amount of information such as:
- phone numbers
- email addresses
- veterinary information
- medical conditions/allergies
- vaccination information
even your pet’s photo! If you choose, you can also share your pet’s profile on Twitter and Facebook. If the worst happens and your pet is lost, you can quickly update their profile and change their status to lost, missing, etc. to help secure your pet’s quick recovery.
The tags themselves are small and made of a tough plastic which makes them lightweight and easy to wipe off. The flip side of the tag can be engraved with your phone number, etc. like a traditional tag. The PetQRTag comes in several different shapes and colors.
We think this is an important product that definitely increases the safety factor for pets. The PetQRTag is a great use of technology to enhance our pet’s lives. And, we like the fact that there are no ongoing expenses, once the tag has been purchased.
A definite paws-up for the PetQRTag!
Price: $14.95 to $19.95
