The best solution is to implant an electronic chip into the pet, apply for an electronic ID card, record the pet information into the warehouse, and centralize management. Fundamentally solve the problem of difficult collection and management of pet information.

In 2020, the Japanese House of Representatives recently passed an amendment to the Animal Protection Act, stipulating that pet cats and dogs are obliged to implant RFID pet tags to prevent owners from abandoning and abusing them. Now, the Japanese Senate deliberated and passed it, officially becoming law. According to reports, the new law aims to clarify the responsibility of owners and prevent the abandonment of dogs or cats. Compulsory chip implantation will be implemented within 3 years after the new law is promulgated.

This chip is actually an electronic tag, using RFID radio frequency identification technology. The implantation of RFID pet tags is relatively simple, just implant the chip under the skin of the corresponding part of the pet, and the risk of the whole process is very low.

The outside of the RFID pet tag is covered with a biological coating, and the 134.2KHZ low-frequency implantable RFID tag is used, which will not affect the pet’s body. Each RFID chip has a special ID code. After the chip is implanted, the pet’s identity is determined and bound together with the owner’s information, which greatly facilitates the management of pets.

What is the RFID Pet Tag?

Traditional pet identification methods such as ear tags and listings are outdated, backward, and easy to lose, with a small amount of information and complicated modification. However, after the electronic chip is implanted in the pet, there is no problem of loss.

In response to such market demand, Newbega company is committed to the research of RFID pet tags, and the launched ETAG-PK03 tag has been verified and widely used in the market. The size of the tag is only 8mm. It ensures the uniqueness of animal identification and tracks the entire life cycle of animals.

An RFID Pet Tag is a small tag or sensor implanted in or attached to a collar worn by a pet, which uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to identify and track the pet’s activities and movements. The tag contains a unique identification code that can be read by RFID scanners or readers.

RFID Pet Tags provide an effective and convenient way to monitor and manage pets, particularly for pet owners who want to keep a closer eye on their pets’ movements, such as pet boarding businesses or pet shelters.

With an RFID Pet Tag, pet owners and managers can track pet activity within their facilities and monitor pets in real-time, ensuring their safety, security and reducing the risk of their getting lost. RFID technology can also set up appropriate access restrictions ensuring that pets are only permitted areas where they are allowed, delivering enhanced safety, and security for the pets, their designated owners, and authorized personnel.

RFID Pet Tags can save pet owners from the hassle of changing name tags that can be damaged over time; hence they are a more efficient choice for pet identification. They provide durability, and RFID tags do not require batteries or frequent replacements.

RFID Pet Tag Application in Practice

In the United States, a company called Whistle produces and sells an RFID tracker called “Whistle GPS Pet Tracker”. The device helps pet owners track their pets in real time and provides data on their pets’ health and behavior.


The tracker uses GPS technology to track the pet’s location, but it can also use Wi-Fi and cellular networks to provide more accurate and comprehensive location information. It can also monitor pets’ movement and activity levels and share this data with pet owners to help them better understand their pets and manage their health.

In addition, Whistle has developed a health management application called “Whistle FIT” for this tracker. The app helps pet owners track their pets’ weight, diet, sleep and other health metrics, and provides advice and tips on their pet’s health. Through these tools, pet owners can better understand their pets, and detect and solve health problems in time.

Overall, Whistle’s “Whistle GPS Pet Tracker” is a useful RFID tracker that can help pet owners better understand their pets and manage their health. Through this innovative technology, we can see the great potential of RFID technology in the field of pet management.


Obviously, with the development of The Times, people are more and more closely related to pets. An effective pet label can well protect the safety of pets, and at the same time can make pet management more convenient.
