One of the worst feelings to experience as a pet owner is a realization that your pet has gone missing. Only 17% of runaway dogs and 2% of lost cats make it back to their owners—which can make it feel like you’ll never see your pet again.
Appanasha Pet Clinic wants to encourage you to
consider microchipping your pet, even if they live entirely indoors–because
even indoor pets can escape and become lost. Unlike collars and tags,
microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s
entire life. Microchips are also rated for 25 years, meaning they never need to
be removed or recharged during your pet’s lifetime.
Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively
painless and very affordable. Once implanted, authorities only need to scan the
chip to locate your information. But remember: a microchip is only useful if
your contact information is updated.
