Is Your Pet Micro-Chipped?

No one wants it to happen, but sometimes pets run away or get lost. This can be one of the most frightening experiences to a pet and his owner. Today's technology provides us with not only ways to keep our pets safe, but also a way to find them if they get lost. The most effective way to ensure that your pet can be easily identified is to have them micro-chipped. Micro-chipping is a quick procedure that will guarantee that your pets have a virtually fail-safe way to be identified, if they become lost. There are many advantages to having your pet micro-chipped, including: * Micro-chipping gives your pet the best chance of getting home quickly * Micro-chipping is the only permanent method of pet identification * The micro-chipping procedure is no more painful than a vaccination * Identification information cannot fall off or become worn and hard to read like collars or id tags can. After having your pet micro-chipped, it is important to register the correct identification information with the microchip company. We recommend checking with your local shelters to see what type of readers they use prior to getting your pet micro-chipped. Most veterinarians will insert a microchip for a small fee. They may also recommend what type of microchip would be best for you and your pet. If your veterinarian does not implant microchips they may be able to advise you on where the nearest clinic is that does offer this service. Although micro-chipping has many advantages, it shouldn't be viewed as a replacement for identification tags on his or her collar - those tags are important.
