    Should You Microchip Your Pet?

    Absolutely!

    You should Microchip your pet as soon as possible.

    Each year, thousands of dogs and cats are reunited with their owners thanks to microchips. Positive identification is the only way to ensure that you are reunited with your pet if it becomes lost or stolen.  A secure collar with tags indicating the home address and phone numbers or a GPS collar is a good start.  The problem is that collars come off.  A thief would simply remove one, and cat collars are designed to “break-away” in case the collar gets hung on a fence or tree limb.  With a Microchip you’ll be able to rest a little easier knowing that if anything happens to your pet, you’ll have a better chance of recovering him/her.

    What is a Microchip?

    A Microchip is a very affordable tiny chip (the size of a grain of rice) that is painlessly implanted beneath the skin and scanned at any time to provide a unique identification number.  The code/number on the chip is registered with the manufacturer’s recovery database along with the pet owner’s emergency contact information.  Veterinarians, Shelters, and Animal Control departments have the hand held scanners to check lost pets for a chip.
