The Value of Microchipping Your Pet
Pets get lost all the time, and lost animals can get surprisingly far away from home, and end up in some unlikely places. This is why it is important to microchip your pet. The beauty of microchipping is that all animal shelters and animal control centers have the tools to read a microchip. No matter where your pet ends up, microchipping helps your pet make it home quickly and safely.
A Collar is No Match for Nature
Many people think a collar with tags is enough to identify their pet. However, dogs and cats can slip their collars with ease. Collars can be snagged and pulled off. Without a clear connection to an owner, your pet can easily be classified as a stray. Unfortunately, animal control agencies in many jurisdictions have no choice but to put down stray animals after a certain amount of time has passed.
Simple and Effective
Microchipping involves placing a body-friendly ID tag between your pet’s shoulder blades. The process is quick, easy, and can be completed in a few minutes. There is no irritation, and the chip does not cause a reaction because it is designed from bio-friendly material. The ID in the chip is readable with an RFID scanner. Every single animal shelter and animal control center will have one of these scanners on hand. When scanned, the microchip reveals a number that is linked to your name, address, phone number, and other identifying information. As long as your microchip registration ID is kept up to date, your lost pet will easily be identified and returned.
