Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many don't make it back home. Many pets (especially indoor pets) don't wear collars or tags. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off and tags can become damaged and unreadable, so these forms of identification may not be enough to ensure your pet's safe return. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can't get lost, stolen, or damaged.
A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. The microchip number is registered to the pet and owner. Registering the number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery database.
We have helped numerous pets return home with microchips we have implanted! Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet's return if the unthinkable happens. Need more information on microchipping your pet? Visit HomeAgain online.
