What would you do if your pet got lost?Sadly, millions of pets get lost each year, and without an ID, 90% don’t return home. While a pet owner’s first line of defense is a collar with their pet’s name and contact information on pet tags, it is possible that these items can be lost or removed. The veterinarians at our clinics recommend having your pet microchipped to increase the chances that you and your pet will be reunited in the event that they are lost. The microchip is inserted between the shoulder blades with a needle and can easily be done at anytime, but is commonly performed at the time of spay/ neuter. If a lost pet is brought to a shelter, animal control facility, or veterinarian’s office, they will be scanned for the presence of a microchip. The code on the microchip is linked to a database that has the pet owner’s contact information. This tiny chip has saved many lost pets lives; please ask our staff about getting your pet microchipped today. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. HomeAgain is the only dog & cat microchipping product on the market today that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the microchip will stay in place. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet.
