Accidents happen, no matter how careful you are. Pets can get lost, or run away. Microchipping your cat or dog brings peace of mind. In a worst case scenario, you know your pet will be found, brought to a vet office, and that you’ll be contacted right away using the information on the microchip.
What are the benefits of microchipping your pet?
The main benefit of having your pet microchipped is that your pet will always be identifiable. A tag can easily fall off, break or be removed, but a microchip is embedded under the skin, and remains there throughout their lifetime.
Most vet clinics and hospitals, animal shelters and pet stores have microchip scanners. That means if your pet gets lost or runs away, someone at one of such businesses will be able to scan the microchip and immediately get in touch with you.
