Every year, millions of pet owners go through the traumatic experience of losing a pet. Microchipping has helped many of these pet owners reunite with their furry friends. Amelia Pointe Animal Hospital & Daycare in Fernandina Beach, FL, we offer safe and effective microchipping services to help safeguard your pet in the event he gets lost or stolen. If you’re still on the fence about microchipping your kit or pup, consider the following facts about microchips for pets.
Safe and Reliable
Microchips are tiny computer chips that are implanted under your pet’s skin. They’re safe, nontoxic, and secure, as they cannot fall out, break, or be removed by thieves intent on reselling your pedigree kit or pup.
These microchips are registered in pet data bases around the country along with your contact information. If your pet is found and taken to a shelter or clinic, veterinary staff can scan the chip, identify your pet, and give you a call so you can come and retrieve him without delay.
Microchipping is virtually painless for your pet. The chip is implanted using a syringe, similar to vaccinations. It’s quick, easy, and comfortable for your pet, posing no risk to his health or lifestyle. The entire microchipping process takes less than a minute and requires no anesthesia. Pets large and small can be microchipped to facilitate their recovery if they are lost. Microchips are also permanent, making it unnecessary for veterinary staff to upgrade them every few years.
Microchips have been proven highly effective in helping pet owners reunite with their feline and canine companions. Your part as a pet owner is to register your pet’s ID number in a pet data base so your contact details are readily available to whoever finds your pet. You’re also responsible for keeping this information up-to-date at all times to make it easy for others to get in touch. Microchipping improves your chances of recuperating your beloved pet in the event he should get lost or stolen. It’s a vital part of his pet care.
Microchipping is affordable, making it easy for you to microchip multiple pets. As a valuable member of your family, your pet deserves the best protection you can provide. By microchipping your pet, you can have the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing all you can to protect his security.
