    Hiya, i have a giant dewlap toulouse and Im looking at the options for id for her. She has been microchipped. And did have a leg band but she outgrow it and i can't find anywhere that has them big enough. I'm just thinking get loose or stolen the chances of of her being scanned are pretty slim so I'd like some form of visual id as well.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Lucy

    I'm not positive, but I believe they can tatoo into the webbing between the feet. This would no doubt involve being put under for a little while, but I think I've heard of this being done. Check with your vet. I had my dog tattooed years ago before the microchips, they did it back then on puppies inside the groin.
