August is Pet Identification Month
Because some things are inevitable . . .
According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2% of cats and only 15 to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners. Most of these were identified with tags, tattoos or micorchips.
One in three pets will become lost in their lifetime.
It is estimated that over 94% of lost pets that have a microchip are successfully reunited with their families.
Will having a microchip implanted hurt my pet?
No anesthetic is required for a microchip implant. The procedure is performed here, at your veterinarian's office and is similar to administering a vaccine or a routine shot.
