A Microchip may be the most important gift you ever give your pet.
Micro-chipping provides the peace of mind that you've given your pet the permanent, lifetime ID it needs for the best chance to come home.
Here's what you should know about microchips. They:
- Do not hurt your pet -- no more discomfort than a vaccination.
- Do not require surgery -- a simple, one-time insertion with a syringe.
- Do not move out of place -- design keeps the microchip from moving.
Losing a pet may be easier than you realize.
- Your pet digs under a fence or bolts through an invisible fence and escapes.
- Thunderstorms of fireworks cause your pet to panic and flee.
- While traveling, your pet wanders away into unfamiliar territory.
- An emergency occurs and your pet gets lost in the turmoil.
- A handyman accidentally lets your pet out.
- Someone steals your pet while unattended.
A microchip is more reliable than a collar and a tag because there is no chance it will fall off. The microchip is a permanent ID that links your pet to you.
Here is how it works:
- After the microchip is inserted, you simply enroll your pets ID code along with your contact information. Enrolling is what makes it possible for your pet to be positively identified.
- If your pet is taken to an animal shelter or clinic, the staff will scan the microchip to read its unique ID code.
- The staff will then call the appropriate registry with your pets identified ID code.
- As soon as your contact information is retrieved, you will be contacted and arrangements will be made to reunite you with your pet.
