GPS tracker or microchip?
How good would it be to track your pet via it’s microchip when he/she is gone missing? Unfortunately this is not yet possible in a microchip however via the Tractive GPS Pet Tracker you might still be able to find your pet;
Registered & microchipped Pets worldwide can only be identified when found, in order to read the Microchip and locate the owner. But what to do for Pets that are lost and not found? Can you implement a GPS tracker in it’s microchip? Unfortunately not, the required equipment for this feature is till too large and will not fit into a Microchip.
A GPS tracker has however been developed that can be placed onto your pets collar and can help track your pet in the not too far away neighborhood. This way you can track your Pet in real time.
