Microchips are small computer chips that contain an owner’s information. They are implanted into a pet and are used to identify a pet using that pet’s owner’s information in case the pet is lost.
Studies have shown that microchipping does work in reuniting owners with their lost pets. Both cats and dogs can be microchipped. It can be easily done at your vet’s office. Always talk to your vet if you have any questions about it.
The important thing to remember is to register the microchip and keep your information current so it’s easier to reunite you and your pet! The information needed is your address and phone number.
If you find a stray dog or cat, take it into your vet’s office to get it scanned. This will tell you if the animal is microchipped and can be reunited with their owners!
