Use American Humane's Tag Day, April 1, as an opportunity to regroup and refresh your efforts to promote tags and microchips. "Every month we promote a service on a display board in our lobby. In April, we'll stress the importance of tags and microchips," says Nancy Allen, practice manager at Olathe Animal Hospital in Olathe, Kan. "At our practice, the most effective approach has been to offer microchips when clients bring pets in to be spayed or neutered. Clients appreciate that we can insert the chips while the pets are under anesthesia, so it doesn't cause any discomfort." They also hand out puppy and kitten packets that include information on microchips and tag order forms. "Tag Day should be an everyday event!" Allen says.
