Pets with microchips are 20 times more likely to be reunited with their owners. 1 in 3 pets get lost without Identification and 90% don’t return home. Collars and tags can wear down or fall off. A microchip is always there.
Over 20% of vets couldn’t reunite pets with their owners because the chip was not register. We take care of the registration for you, so you just have to update if your contact information changes.
If your pet is microchipped and picked up by the shelter, they cannot put your pet to sleep.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is encoded with a unique ID number that will be assigned to your pet. No two microchips have the same ID number. The microchip is placed between your dog’s or cat’s shoulder blades under a veterinarian’s supervision. Implantation is quick, easy and virtually painless — similar to a vaccine injection — and can be performed during a regular veterinary check-up visit.
