Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a lost dog or lost cat poster. We know how much pet parents adore their animals, and to lose track of one would simply be a nightmare. Luckily, pet tagging is a sure-fire way to lower the risk of this happening to you or anyone you know!
Safe, effective, and often life saving, microchips are a fantastic way to ensure your buddy sticks around as long as possible. Almost any vet will recommend this method, and it’s fairly inexpensive and definitely worth it!
Lost dogs and cats that wander the streets often end up in a shelter or veterinary clinic. If they have a microchip embedded, their human parents can be called and reunited with their loved one! Now, you might be thinking that a procedure like this might be painful to your furry friend, but according to PetFinder, it hurts no more than a regular vaccination!
Most states require dogs and cats to have tags on them, but even tags on collars aren’t foolproof. Collars can often fall off or become so worn down that they are impossible to read! These risks make microchipping a purrrr-fect solution.
It’s a big world out there, and all pet parents should be prepared to keep their dog or cat safe in it. Some breeds of animals have a tendency to run when they see an open door or gate: it’s simply in their genes, and no amount of training can make their instincts fully go away. Your loving fluffballs need you, so humans to the rescue!
Millions of pets are lost in the United States alone, and a very low percentage of them return home. Tags and microchips could potentially increase homecomings significantly! If your pet isn’t currently microchipped, please consider it! Nothing could ever replace the presence of a four-legged companion and the love they give.
