When a pet is separated from its owner, it can be a frightening situation. Owners are concerned about their pet’s safety, as well as who will locate them and how they will be reunited. I.D. tags have been known to break off or become unreadable after pets have slipped out of their collars.
A microchip can be implanted between your dog or cat’s shoulder blades (other animals such as horses, ferrets, and most mammals can be microchipped too). Should your pet get lost, this microchip has information linked with your phone number and address. The chip can be scanned by any veterinary clinic or animal shelter, and they can help contact you to get your pet back home safely.
