A microchip is a small, identification implant that is inserted under the skin of cats and dogs, which can be scanned by a vet to identify them if they’re found away from home. Microchips are one of the best forms of pet identification, as they cannot get lost in the way that a collar and tag can.

The best dog bed should be big enough to protect their joints from the hard floor, no matter what positions they stretch into. Think of how big your dog is lying down, and add about a foot around in every direction. That’s how big the bed should be.
