According to Dr. James Humphries of the Veterinary News Network, at least one in every three pets disappears and is lost every year.  That adds up to about 5 million missing pets every year in the United States alone.  These are heartbreaking statistics as many people consider their pets to be members of their families.  In fact, most families would spare no expense or effort in order to bring their missing pets home.

GPS Tracking & Pets

There are two basis methods of pet recovery—microchips and GPS tracking.  Microchips are small devices used for identification that are placed under the skin of an animal such as a cat, dog, or horse.  Each microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and they are effective in identifying animals. GPS tracking devices take the search for the missing animals much further.  You see, microchips are useful only in identifying an animal and its owner.

These GPS tracking devices utilize CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) to help do more than simply identify animals.  GPS tracking devices can actually locate the missing animals.  This takes the guesswork out of missing animals; instead of a stranger finding and identifying an animal, with the GPS tracking device, you can locate your animal yourself using live, real-time tracking.  You can track your missing animal on any web-enabled device such as a computer or a cell phone.

One of the best GPS tracking devices for pets is the PT-200.  It is small and portable, and it can be used to recover any number of important things—from pets to cars.  One of the most interesting features of the “pet version” of the PT-200 is that it comes in a canvas case that can easily slip on to a dog collar.  Because the GPS tracking devices are easily transported on the dog’s collar, there is virtually no way to lose your dog or cat without being able to find them very soon after.

Pets are very important members of the family.  Unfortunately, accidents happen, and pets sometimes wander off and get lost.  No one wants to be without his beloved cat, dog, or horse for very long.  The GPS tracking device PT-200 for pets provides real-time, up to the minute information as to the whereabouts of your pet’s location.  Being able to track your pet brings peace of mind and confidence knowing it will be home soon.
