USB ID Tag Stores More Than Your Address

Bare Bones: USB ID Tag

If you haven't lost a pet, then you're pretty lucky – I'm still sad when I think about little Scooter. Thousands of animals go missing every day and only a small portion of them are ever found. Thankfully, with technological advances, there are more tracking options for families with animals – as long as the finder takes the time to look for them. Microchips like HomeAgain are implanted under a pet's skin, and offer other services like vet and shelter alerts, poster making services, and pet ID cards that help you cover a broader area during your search.
I've already told you that my lil' guy has a microchip and an ID tag, but I think adding this USB ID Tag ($40) could prove useful in other situations as well. Storing essential information like owner address, phone number, alternate contacts, dietary restrictions, medications, and photos, it's also helpful for pet sitters, too. That way next time your pet checks into a hotel or goes to the vet, you can guarantee you have all his information on hand . . . or, in this case, right around his neck!

I'm just concerned about having so much information like your address on something that could easily be lost or stolen.
