Our small animal ear tags (Style 1005-1) can be used for multiple purposes. Research labs, universities, and hospitals, all use these ear tags on mice and rats in their research. Wildlife conservation organizations use these tags on small animals such as rabbits and squirrels to track population and research species. Breeders and competition shows use our tags on animals like rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs to track litters, and for showing animals to meet competition identification requirements.

Can a 1005-1 go in an MRI?

Can you use a 1005-1’s on Chinchillas?
The stamped 1005-1s will work on chinchillas, but the laser etched ones will not because the lasered numbers can’t stand up to the dust bathes.

How do you apply a 1005-1?
Place the ear tag in the applicator keeping the hole side of the tag flat against the jaw of the applicator with the indentation. Locate the tag within the ear, applying beyond a ring of cartilage. After sealing, be sure to check that the tag point has come through the hole and bent around sealing properly. Wash tags in alcohol or a similar cleaning solution to help prevent infection to the ear.

What is the difference between stamped, paint-filled and laser etched?
For stamped tags, the numbers are indented into the tag. The stamped tags can be filled with paint for a higher-contrasting look. Laser etched tags are engraved with a laser that creates a darker text and can fit more numbers onto a tag.
