We highly recommend microchipping as a way to keep your pet from potentially being lost or stolen.
While tags and collars are traditional ways of keeping your pet associated with your home address, this is often not enough to ensure the total safety of your pet if the unforeseen occurs.
Microchipping your pet involves a small chip, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, to be painlessly implanted beneath your pet’s skin. While the procedure itself is minor, this can make the difference between finding your pet and potentially losing them. The information on the microchip is encoded with specific information about your pet and stored in a secure, national database.
If your pet is lost, veterinary hospitals and animal shelters can easily scan for the microchip to successfully reunite you with your pet! This simple procedure has made a world of difference for pets and their owners and is highly recommended.
