In light of increased dog thefts and not being able to prove ownership by microchip, I have recently considered having my dogs tattooed as well. In the past I have been against tattooing because of dogs having their ears cut off to remove the tattoo but now I am of the mind that it visible and may deter someone stealing.
Is there only one tattoo registry? Is it painful for adult dogs? Is there anywhere else on the body they are routinely tattooed?
Anyone had it done – what are the pros and cons? Sorry there are so many questions, really don’t know much about it!
