Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many don’t make it back home. Many pets (especially indoor pets) don’t wear collars or tags. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off and tags can become damaged and unreadable, so these forms of identification may not be enough to ensure your pet’s safe return. A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely. It is about the size a grain of rice, placed under your pet’s skin. The microchip will have information about your pet to help you reunite. Once the microchip is registered with the national pet recovery database if a veterinary hospital, animal shelter, animal control officer, or anyone equipped with a scanner will detect the microchip, access the database, and locate your information. Ensure your pet will safely return to your home, microchipping is safe and effective, call us today.
