How it Works

How Does It Work?

Every tag is unique. A QR and NFC code are computer programmed specifically for your pet, with access to a personal web address. Placing a Smartphone on the tag will bring the user directly to your PetSpace©, giving them access to vital contact and emergency information on your family pet, such as name, age, behaviors, special diet needs, and most importantly, owner contact information. You can also access their PetSpace© on the following page by entering in the personalized 7-digit code found on the tag.

What Does NFC stand for?

NFC is the abbreviation of Near Field Communication. In pure layman’s terms, NFC is a way for your mobile phone to communicate with something else, be it a tag, card, poster, sticker, tap to pay card reader. It serves as a way to consume information, pay for things or load data onto your phone instantly. Our tags open your mobile’s internet browser and navigate to the pet’s Petspace page automatically and instantly.

Most commonly, smart phones will have NFC enabled by default. If your device doesn’t respond to tapping a tag, make sure it is enabled. Here are some instructions for the most common devices today.

What Does QR stand for?

QR stands for Quick Response. A QR Code is a type of 2D bar code that is widely used to provide instant access to information through a smartphone. The smartphone’s owner points the phone at a QR code and opens a barcode reader app which works in conjunction with the phone’s camera. The reader interprets the code, which opens your mobile’s internet browser and navigates to the pet’s Petspace page instantly.

Are all QR Codes the same?

No. The popularity rate of usage for QR codes has risen quite significantly that other manufacturers have now developed their own versions of similar 2 dimensional coding. While QR Code readers remain a free resource, it can sometimes be painful linking up the right code to the right reader. With QR2 Pet Tags, you don’t have to worry about that. Our pet tags are written with a universal QR code, making it easy to use with any QR reader.

What is a QR Reader?

A QR Reader is software that “reads” the QR Codes. On mobile devices and tablets, this software would be called an “App” or “Application”. There are a multitude of available QR Readers online provided by various phone manufacturers.

What information can be displayed on the physical tag?

The QR2 Pet Tag will have your Pet’s unique QR Code, your Pet’s unique 7 digit code, and the web address to manually search their Pet Profile.

What information is stored on your pet’s PetSpace©?

One of the most convenient advantages to the QR2 Pet Tag is that it will never need replacing when changes occur. Your stored information can be modified and edited by you whenever you need, and YOU choose what information is displayed to the public.

If your pet goes missing, you can update their file to “missing”, and you can post your pet’s picture and advertise where they were last seen. You can change your information, including change of address, phone numbers and even emergency contacts, and you can do all this without ever having to replace your pets tag. This is all available by simply updating his profile online from the comfort of your own home. Additional information can be provided including dietary needs and medical issues. You can have your pet’s medical history and store their license and registration numbers so you will never have to hunt for that paperwork again.

Why would I want a QR2 Pet Tag?

You want the best for your pet and QR2 Pet Tags is easy, non-invasive, inexpensive, and advanced enough to be accessed by your mobile device and/or internet.
Traditional ID tags have limited space, only pertinent details can be shared on your pets ID tag. Once the information is out of date, you are required to go out, re-purchase a new tag and provide the current information. Repeated purchases and visits to the store are financially burdening, inconvenient and not necessary with the QR2 Pet Tag.

Microchips are an alternative method for identifying your pet. This is a permanent ID, yet not re-usable. There is a costly and invasive procedure involved that includes a visit to the family veterinary clinic for implantation of the chip. And in the case of a lost pet, this chip is not clearly visible to the “finder” and offers no chance for communications between the finder and the owner. There is a huge burden placed on the “finder” to take the pet into a Veterinary Office, Animal Pound or Shelter. The Veterinary Office, Pound or Shelter then has the responsibility for trying to return your pet safely home. This is not an easy task because not all chips are manufactured the same and actually require a variety of readers to accommodate the many brands out there. Should the place that your pet is taken to have an incompatible reader, the chip then has not served its purpose at all, and your pet is not closer to finding his way home.

Internet use is SO common that we have that technology available at our fingertips daily through our mobile phones and tablets. Smartphones have really excelled in communications and people are inspired to use their phones for talking, texting, emailing, browsing, purchasing, starting their car, locking their doors, and even ordering a movie from their cable provider. And with QR Code and NFC usage on the rise, the QR2 Pet Tag makes identifying your pet simple, effective and instantaneous.
