Each year, 1 in 3 pets go missing and unfortunately many don’t make it back home. Many of these pets lack the proper identification or have lost their collars or tags. Luckily, by using a microchip, we now have a way to identify your pet without tags.
Microchipping is a permanent pet identification method in which a small microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is placed between the shoulder blades of your pet. It is not a tracking device. The microchip number is recorded in a nationwide database that is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. If your pet becomes lost, shelters and veterinary hospitals nationwide have scanners that read the microchip and return the animal to its rightful owner.
