We encourage all pet owners to microchip their animal companions. The sad fact is that only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats make it back to their owners when they become lost. Microchipping greatly increases the chances that your pet will be returned to you—it’s also affordable and relatively painless.
Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information and your pet’s name. The contact information can be updated anytime, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes.
