Consider Microchipping Your Pet

It is about the size of a grain of rice, but it could be the difference for your lost pet being home by dinner or never seeing your best friend again.

There are really no downsides to having your pet microchipped. Less than 2% of cats lost without a chip are ever returned home- that means 98% never see their families again. That is in contrast to 40% of microchipped cats who make it back to their owners. For dogs, the data shows that over 50% with a microchip are returned to their owners, while less than 20% without a chip ever make it back home.

And for those of you with indoor only pets - remember the lessons Hurricane Katrina taught us. Many of the problems faced after Katrina involved reuniting pets with their families. In a natural disaster a microchip may make a big difference for your indoor pet.

Next time you are in ask us about microchipping. That little chip could make a big difference.
