Microchips – an Essential for Pet Owners

Posted on September 11, 2015 at 12:48 pm

If you’ve got a pet dog or a cat, both of which have a tendency towards getting lost, one of the best things that you can do is buy a microchip. These are unique identifiers which provide authorities clear information on who the owners of the pet are and where they can find them.

Although there are alternatives to a microchip, such as a collar with identification, microchips remain the superior choice. The downside is that they do need to be injected, which means that you will likely need to visit your veterinarian to get it installed.

Microchips are micro-sized (obviously), and are installed quite easily through a small injection; from their, these chips sit underneath the skin and remain their for the rest of the dog or cat’s life. If you lose your dog at the park or if your cat gets injured while it is travelling about, this will help you find them.
