No one wants to think it can happen to them, but pets go missing every day. Whether due to a gate that didn't latch, a window that wasn't secure or a dogged dog who tunneled out of a pet sitter's backyard in a homeward bound mission, over 6 million dogs and cats end up in U.S. shelters each year. While identification tags on collars are important, they often fall off. Microchipping your pet at your veterinarian in Sarasota and Parrish FL is permanent. To foster happy reunion stories and promote peace of mind, Dr. Nina's Animal Hospital offers affordable microchipping.
Dog microchipping and cat microchipping at your vet is a simple and safe procedure that only takes minutes. Using a hypodermic needle, we inject a tiny microchip (picture a grain of rice) into the pet's skin. The microchip, which sits in a glass capsule, is linked to a national database used by vets, shelters and other animal facilities. If someone finds your pet, a scan at any of these facilities will bring up your contact information.
When you register your microchip, you can include the names and contact information of multiple people to ensure your pet gets home safely and promptly. This is especially helpful if you are out of town and not available to personally pick up your pet. And while it's hard to imagine the cruelty of someone stealing your furry friend, pet napping is a real problem. The contact information linked to your pet's microchip is one way to prove you are the rightful owner.
Make sure your pet comes home safe. Make a dog microchipping or cat microchipping appointment today.
