Microchips are one of the easiest ways to guarantee your pet can be identified in most circumstances. Does your dog like to dig under the fence no matter how many times you try to stop her? Is your cat sneaky at slipping through an open door or window? When our pets go missing, it’s hard to not feel anxious and stressed until they return.
If you’re familiar with the more wily pets out there, you know how easily a collar can go missing. Even if your pet isn’t the type to purposely remove it, collars often get snagged on a fence during an escape attempt or lost in the bushes while they’re busy exploring. Maybe you’ve been stuck standing there with the leash still firmly attached to a collar, your dog having slipped out. What’s a responsible pet-owner to do?
Microchipping your pets is the easiest way to make sure you’re reunited with your furry family members. We just place a small chip the size of a grain of rice right under the skin at the scruff of their neck and they’re all set. The procedure is performed with a slightly larger needle, and your pet is back to their normal antics just as soon as you get them home. The best part is that you don’t even need to worry about moving or changing phone numbers. All the information linked to the chip will be stored online and can be easily updated to reflect your new address or number.
