Microchips help pet owners reunite with their pets, and the devices are now gaining more awareness. Now, the new technology has become a standard practice for veterinarians and animal shelters.
The technology helps shelters return pets to their rightful owners faster. Locating owners through microchips helps prevent animal shelters from overcrowding, which reduces the stress levels for all the animals.
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and it’s inserted between your pet’s shoulder blades. It has a unique number that’s connected to your contact information. If your pet is lost and taken to an animal shelter, technicians will check for a microchip right away. If your pet has a chip, it will be much easier to reunite you with your furry friend. No worrying about lost collars or tags – your pet’s microchip is unique and permanent, so it offers a lifetime of protection.
