Why Should We Chip Our Pet?

I´m sure that many of you know what it feels like to lose a dog or cat. Well a few years ago my Aunt deceased and I decided to adopt her cat. After about 5 to 6 months later my cat disappeared, never to be found again. It really broke my heart. The reason why I mention this story is because if I had microchipped my Aunt´s cat, the probability in finding her would have been much greater.

Numerous pets can be microchipped including dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and even reptiles. Each year thousands of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters and humane societies. Sadly, a number of these animals are never reunited with their owners because they can’t be identified.

What exactly is a microchip? A microchip is a small device that is about the size of a grain of rice, and can be injected under the skin in just a matter of minutes. This gives the pet its own unique code, which helps animal shelters and local humane societies locate the pet's owner. The process is rapid and painless. Once the chip has been introduced, the animal and the owner are unable to feel it.
Don´t think twice about having your pet microchipped! It is the best option due to many reasons such as:

• Only true everlasting method of pet identification;
• Best chance of your pet returning to you after getting lost;
• Rapid and painless process, similar to vaccination;
• Lasts your pets entire lifetime.

Maybe your pet doesn't know what a microchip is, but he definitely knows how important your companionship is. So keep him safe…
