According to the ASPCA, over 10 million dogs and cats are either lost or stolen in the United States every year. Microchipping your pet is one of the best ways to ensure that your pet will be returned to you should he or she become missing at some point in their life. Microchipping is a very quick procedure in which an RFID chip with a unique identification number is placed just under your pets skin by, or with the supervision of, our veterinarian. Registering your pets new identification number with your contact information is fast and easy to do online from home or on your phone! Almost all veterinary offices and shelters are equipped with microchip scanners to scan pets brought in as strays. Checking or scanning for a microchip is the first thing that happens when a lost or found pet is brought into a veterinary office or shelter, making this one of the best ways to ensure that your pet is returned safely home to you!
