Pets get separated from home for all types of reasons and while most of the time they seem to find their way back to our homes, what about the times they can’t? Having your pet microchipped can be the difference between them being lost forever or returned to their family. Putting your dog in a tagged collar is important, but pets don’t always have them on when they go missing, not to mention lots of animals can slip out of their collars. This is why microchipping is so important for all pets! We inject a tiny computer chip, the size of a grain of rice, right under your pet’s skin. Your pet’s microchip number is put into an international database. If your animal is picked up by the humane society, or brought to a veterinarian from someone who finds them, they will scan your pet to see if they have been microchipped. If they have been, they will contact you based on the information you provided with the microchip. This is also why it is so important to maintain current information for your pet!
