Microchipping your pet has become an increasingly popular and responsible choice for pet owners around the world. A microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted beneath the skin of your beloved pet. It serves as a permanent form of identification and can be a lifesaver in case your pet goes missing or gets lost. The microchip contains a unique identification number that is linked to your contact information in a database, making it easier for animal shelters, veterinarians, and other organizations to reunite you with your furry friend.
Did you know…California State law requires that all pets being redeemed be microchipped before leaving the shelter with their owner?!
Permanent Peace of Mind:
The Unwavering Reliability of Pet Microchip
One of the greatest benefits of microchipping is its reliability. Unlike collars or tags, which can get lost or removed, the microchip is a secure and permanent form of identification. It cannot be altered or tampered with, ensuring that your pet’s information remains intact throughout its life. This gives pet owners peace of mind, knowing that even if their pet loses its collar or identification tags, there is still a reliable method of identifying and contacting them.
**All Spay/Neuter appointments require a pet to be microchipped if they have not already been chipped.
The cost of a microchip is in addition to the cost of surgery.
Streamlined Success: Microchip Scanners Revolutionize Lost Pet Reunions
Another advantage of microchipping is its widespread acceptance and use. Animal shelters, veterinary clinics, and rescue organizations are well-equipped with microchip scanners, enabling them to quickly and efficiently identify lost pets. When a lost pet is brought in, these scanners are used to detect the microchip and retrieve the contact information of the owner. This streamlined process greatly increases the chances of reuniting owners with their pets, saving them from the stress and heartache of prolonged separation.
