National Pet ID Week
Our furry loved ones are such an important part of our lives. Pets are family, we can hardly see doing anything without them. There are many ways we can help protect their health and well-being. Wellness checkups, preventatives for flea+ticks, vaccinations, pet insurance, training, socialization, etc… But two of the most important things we can do as a proactive measure is to ensure that they are microchipped, with proper registration and yearly management (usually just updating their photo) and making sure collar tags are up to date. this becomes the greatest tool in returning your loved ones in the event they are lost. Unfortunately, 1 in 3 pets will go missing(according to Home Again). Generally speaking the first thing a veterinary hospital, animal control, or rescue will do with a found pet is scan for a microchip.
Usually, the procedure of microchipping is done in combination with a spay or neuter, or any other sedated service. However, if your pet has none of these procedures in the foreseeable future, contact us and we can go over the options available.
Microchip registration comes with the ability to set up a profile for your pet (with a photo) along with contact information and address for a safe return. Additional service memberships may be available such as Emergency medical funds, flight costs should your pet be located up to 500miles from home, and many other options.
We take great pride in making sure our pets are healthy and happy, take the extra step to make sure they can find their way home.
For more questions and advice, contact our educated staff and we will be happy to help.
