Microchips greatly increase the chances that pets will be reuinted with their families if they are lost or stolen…but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate.
Today we remind pet owners to have their pets microchipped and to keep the registration information up-to-date.
Stop by a local veterinary hospital or animal shelter to have your pet scanned for a microchip. Once you’ve verified the microchip number, check the registration information in the microchip manufacturer’s database, and make sure it’s up-to-date.
If your pet isn’t microchipped, call your veterinarian today to schedule an appointment to do so (then make sure that your pet’s chip is immediately registered).
