Dog Microchip

If your pet is lost, what precautions do you have in place to make sure your dog or cat is returned home safety? While having a collar with a nametag and phone number is important, having even more security in place will help to ensure your pet can make it home quickly. Having a microchip put on your pet with help to identify them in the situation that they go missing!

Pet Microchips

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.
