1. ID Microchip Your Pet
Lack of identification means as few as 14% of pets ever find their way home after getting lost. Fortunately, microchipping allows for the pet to be reunited with its family, no matter how far away it is when found.
About the size of a rice grain, a microchip is inserted under the skin in less than a second. It needs no battery and can be scanned by a vet or an animal control officer in seconds. Be sure to register the chip ID with the chip’s maker. A current registration is the vital last step in making certain your pet can always find his way home. There is also free chip registry available at http://freepetchipregistry.com/. If you are not sure of your pet’s chip number we can scan it here for free.
Please share this information with your friends and family to ensure that they have their pet’s chip registry up to date. We also offer 50% off pet chips the first Saturday of every month. Call us to schedule an appointment (714)771-3261
