Why should I have my pet microchipped?
It’s a sad fact: thousands of pets are lost each year. The best thing you can do to protect your furry friend from this traumatic experience is to have a microchip inserted. Your pet’s microchip will be safe no matter where he or she wanders and can’t be damaged along the way. Among the many reasons our vets recommend microchips, the most important are:
- Microchips cannot be lost or damaged
- Microchips can help you keep your pet’s health records up-to-date
- Microchips prove you are the rightful owner of your pet
How do Microchips help find lost pets?
Most pets who wander off will end up at a local shelter or humane society. If the worst does happen and your pet goes missing, the shelter where he is found can quickly scan the chip giving them your name, contact information, and the name of your pet. It will not be long before you receive the phone call reuniting you with your favorite family friend.
