Once in awhile we find a product that we get excited about and BarkCode is one of them. This tag is made of stainless steel and is fire coated with a Qr Code specific to each tag. Your pet will wear this on his collar and if lost anyone can scan the code with their smartphone or look up the numeric code on their computer.
This is a great idea, and in some ways, a lot better than using a microchip under the skin for three reasons.
1. When a pet is found not everyone has a scanner available
2. If the person that finds the pet is a good Samaritan he/she may take him to the police or shelter. Not all police have the correct reader
3. The tag can migrate away from the injection site and the scanner may not locate the signal. It is not a bad idea to have both the tag and collar tag as a means of identification, but the BarkCode is an immediate fix for $15 to $17.
Another benefit is that if you move you can access the file that describes your pet with multiple contacts, medical information, etc. You can also change the contacts via computer easily. The radio tags are much more difficult to change information.
This is a very useful product that will save a lot of pets.
