Chip, Chip, Hooray…
Getting your pet microchipped could make the difference between being lost and found. While identification tags are helpful, not all pets are wearing collars and tags when they wander off.
Microchipping your pet is a simple process that can be done during an office call, or while your pet is scheduled for a procedure such as a spay or neuter. This tiny device, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is easily placed beneath your pet’s skin. It provides a unique identification number that links your pet to you when it is scanned. Scanners are used by all veterinarians and animal shelters to help identify lost pets and reunite them with their families.
Help avoid the heartache that comes from losing a pet who escapes out of an open door or unsecured fence. Talk to your veterinarian about how a microchip can help reunite you faster and more easily with your best friend.
