There are so many unique days and months dedicated to bringing awareness to different aspects of our pets’ lives. For example, did you know that every June is known as National Pet Microchip Awareness Month?

It’s not June anymore but the awareness continues into July as July is known as Lost Pet Prevention Month! They tie together in a way and with fewer than 2% of cats and 15% to 20% of dogs going missing [statistic via PetHub], never to reunite with their families, it’s a scary thought to not be prepared! In this blog post, we’ve got some tips for you to keep in mind when it comes to the security of your fur baby and making sure that if they ever get out, the chances of being reunited are better than without preparation and being informed.

Tips & Info For Lost Pet Prevention Month

Understand Your Dog’s Anxieties

It’s not uncommon for a dog to run away because one of their anxieties was triggered. Take the time to get a better understanding of your dog’s anxieties so that you can make adjustments around the house to keep them feeling comfortable and secure to prevent an escape!

Secure Your Yard

Bringing your dog outside and there’s no fence or gate in your yard? Consider your options for making your outdoor area more secure for your dog to frolic without temptation or curiosity that leads them to peacing out!

Keep Your Walks Secure

Excitement stirs up easily for your fur baby when you’re out for walks. It’s recommended to keep your dog on a leash and in close control and proximity to you especially when it comes to those holidays that utilize fireworks. Luckily, we’re already past July 4th but we’ve got a few more holidays coming up that may present you a full week of neighbors blasting fireworks that may scare your dog. Find a good leash and a good harness for this!

Make Sure Their Identification Is Up To Date

Identification? For your dog? Yes! Remember, we were talking about microchipping. This is an ID that lives in your pet’s skin and has all the information necessary to reunite you with your dog should they make a grand escape or go missing!

What To Do When Your Pet Goes Missing

Organize a thorough and effective search for your dog or fur baby. Recruit your neighbors to keep an eye out for them. If you have the time, print out missing flyers, join Facebook groups dedicated for lost/found pets in your area, etc.
