All too often we hear of those sad stories of a lost beloved pet on the news or in social media. If these pets had been in possession of a microchip then the reunion would take place much sooner than usual! What is a microchip? A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and like a computer chip contains a wealth of information about your pet. It holds not only the owner’s information but also the veterinarian who placed the chip. This little device is inserted painlessly under your pet’s skin. If your pet is found it is becoming more and more common for a Good Samaritan to bring the animal into their local animal clinic for identification. The doctor will scan over where the chip is placed and if a chip is present, the data is displayed and contact is made immediately with the pet’s owner. If you are interested in microchipping please call the staff at All Creatures Animal Care to set up an appointment for your beloved animal companion.
