We love our pets and are devastated if one goes missing. Microchipping your pet helps ensure you and your pet are reunited.
A microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted between the dog’s or cat’s shoulder blades. Each microchip is embedded with a unique code for your pet – no two are alike. Should your pet go missing the microchip can be easily scanned by a veterinarian or shelter who can then contact the owner for a happy reunion.
Cats go astray as well as dogs. Even indoor cats can benefit from a microchip as they can easily bolt through a door or slip out of their collar.
It is important that you register your pet’s microchip ID number and be sure to keep the information up to date so you can be reached.
One in three pets go missing every year. Thanks to microchips, millions of pets have been reunited with their owners.
Make sure your pet finds its way home. Call us today at 518-785-5531 to schedule an appointment to microchip your pet for a happy ending.
