If your pet goes missing, you’ll want to use all available resources to help get your pet home as soon as possible. While having a tag on your pet with your name and phone number is important, an additional resource you can use to relocate your pet is a microchip. Microchip technology is safe and painless for your pet, and, most importantly, helps you locate your pet to bring them home safe and sound.
Most pets, even indoor cats, will become lost or run away once in their lifetime, if even only for a short time. And many of these will lose their collars while lost leaving them with no way to get home. When your pet is missing, wouldn’t you want the peace of mind knowing they had a “Get Out of Jail Free” card? Pets may be adopted away from you or worse, euthanized at shelters after 3 days.
Microchipping is a permanent form of identification that ensures a safe return should your pet ever become lost or stolen. This identification system requires a single injection of a microchip about the size of a grain of rice. We recommend the Home Again chip as this technology used in the chip has been proven the best and is detected by ALL microchip scanners.
