Vets RFID our pet cats and dogs, often when they are first vaccinated. This allows any Vet access to knowledge about what treatment they have received; meaning potentially less suffering and better care. Your pet's RFID also allows the Vet to connect with you should they be lost or stolen and, then found by someone.
We left our family cat alone for a day at my parents-in-law’s house in the countryside. Everything should have been OK after all he was born there, he had food and water and, we had done it before. When we returned there was no sign of our cat, he had gone and no amount of searching could locate him. The evenings search soon took-up the best part of several days.
Back home and 3 months later after we had given up all hope and talk had started of possibly getting another cat when we received a call from a complete stranger. “I know where your cat is. He is with a friend of mine in Milan, Italy”. That is 1200 km away from where we live. Could this be true? How did this person know how to contact us? After some minutes of questions we came to understand that it was true. How? Well, thanks to the finder of our cat taking him to a Vet. The Vet read his implanted RFID tag which he received when he was vaccinated. This provided the Vet access to information enabling her to contact us which led to us eventually being reunited with our cat.
How did he get to Milan? The one most likely to know the answer to this question is our cat. RFIDs do not provide GPS tracking showing us where he has been.
