Identifying Lost Pets with Microchips
You may have some questions about microchipping your pet. Is it safe? Can I afford it? Does it really work? The answers are YES!
Sure, we can understand hesitation. No one really enjoys injections. But this easy implant could be one of the best decisions you make for your pet.
The process is simple. Your pet is injected with a microchip, which is then registered with your information, and then placed into a database. Shelters and vet clinics then have the ability to scan the chips when pets come in and out of a facility.
Though there are many reasons why you should pick up the phone and make an appointment now, we have narrowed down the list to just a few:
- Fact: One in every three pets will get lost at some point within their life. What’s shocking more is that 10 perfect of those lacking microchips are actually reunited with their owners. Microchips are one of the fastest tools to help you find your lost pet.
- It’s quick and relatively painless to insert. Requiring less than a few seconds to inject, it’s much like any other vaccine your pet receives. The chip is placed behind their shoulder, is no bigger than a grain of rice, and often cannot be felt by the hand.
- Microchipping isn’t free, but it won’t break the bank either. At our local shelter, the cost is only $25 for the full procedure and registration. Schedule an appointment today to get your pet registered in the national database today and get peace of mind.
- The chip is permanent, meaning no falling off or a tag being removed. It requires no batteries or power source. The chips are made out of a biocompatible substance, which means it won’t cause any allergic reactions in your, and won’t degrade over time.
- Super easy to change your address! With easy instruction by the manufacturer, it’s stress-free to keep your information up-to-date!
