Microchipping Saves Lives
How will you locate your dog if it gets out of your yard, or if you're separated while traveling or during an emergency? Help first responders, rescuers and vets locate you if they find your dog.
A microchip is a permanent ID that more than doubles your chances of reuniting with your lost dog. According to oe study on the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association the numbers goes from 22% for unchipped dogs to 56% for dogs with microchips, the numbers are even higher for cats ( don't do cats but we recommend you ask your vet or local cat rescue about chipping kitty too).
The tiny oblong chip is injected beneath the skin on the lower neck area behind the head, roughly above or between the shoulder blades. I Then you can register your pet’s microchip number and contact information with a free online pet recovery database. Anyone who finds your dog, can ask a vet, a shelter, animal control, and even some pet stores, to scan for a chip. If they find one, they can check online to identify and contact the registered owner.
We strongly recommend microchipping, it could mean the difference between losing your furry friend forever or bringing them home where they belong. It is easy, inexpensive, effective and no more painful than a vaccine.
