August 15th is Check the Chip Day = Discounted Chip Insertion Too!
Microchips increase the chance that pets will be reunited if they are lost or stolen. However, a microchip only works if the information linked to the chip is correct and your contact information is up to date.
Why should you microchip your pet?
- 1 in 3 pets get lost at least once in their lifetime
- Over 10 million pets are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year
- Only about 22% of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52%
Pet microchipping is a simple procedure performed by a veterinarian. A microchip for pets is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm) and inserted beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine vaccine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required.
Stop by on August 15th to have your pet’s microchip scanned by one of our staff members to ensure its accuracy.
