1 in 3 family pets go missing at some point during their lifetime. Of those, 90% don’t return home.
Micro-chipping is a simple procedure that only takes a few seconds during an office visit. A tiny device, the micro-chip, no bigger than a grain of rice is implanted under the loose skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. It is no more painful than a routine immunization. All you have to do is submit your contact information to the national data base and keep it updated! Animals that are brought into shelters are scanned and a unique id code is displayed on the scanner, once the code is entered into the database, it matches the animal to the owners name and contact information and the pet may be returned home.
Micro-chipping is a very cost effective way to prevent a heartbreaking situation and keep your pet safe. If you are interested in having your pet Micro-chipped, please give us a call to set up an appointment.
