Animal Microchipping Services - Ensuring Pets Safety
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER MICROCHIP PET IDENTIFICATION
Despite our best efforts, even the most responsible pet owners can’t guarantee their pets won’t get lost sometimes. A leash could slip out of your hand or break, a pet could push through a screen door or window, or a contractor, child, or friend might accidentally leave a door or gate open. It can happen, and it is a highly distressing experience for both you and your furry friend. Microchip pet identification is an important safety measure for all pets and can help reunite you with your companion sooner. Microchipping cats and dogs makes it easier to locate them, helping you bring your pets home safe and sound.
HOW DOES ANIMAL MICROCHIPPING WORK?
Microchipping is a safe and permanent way to identify your pet in case he or she becomes lost, but what exactly is a microchip and how does it work for pet identification? It is a tiny device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, that is placed just under the loose skin at the back of your pet’s neck using a needle. Once the microchip is positioned, the needle is removed. The implanted microchip can move around a little bit but it generally stays between the skin and muscle layer in the neck or back area.
This is a quick procedure that can be done while your pet is awake, as most pets are calm and accepting of having the chip implanted. Microchipping puppies and kitties is a routine service here at Pawsitive, helping you set up your new furry friend with the best chances in the event of an incident later in life.
When a lost pet is found and brought to a veterinary clinic, the staff there will use a handheld scanner to check the animal for a microchip. The scanned microchip transmits an ID number to the scanner via a low-frequency radio wave. The clinic can then enter the number in a computer database and check for any contact information of the pet owner.
COLLARS & ID TAGS
While microchipping cats and dogs is a great solution for tracing your pet, we still recommend using a collar and ID tag to identify your pet along with the microchip. An ID tag is a very reliable identification method. Pets that have ID tags with current contact information are more likely to not end up in shelters and tend to get home faster than those without tags.
But, as collars and ID tags are not permanent and can be removed, your pet can also wriggle out of them. With a microchip as a backup, your pet will have a better chance of being identified and returned to you. Pets without microchips that end up in shelters may be adopted by another person or sadly even euthanized as shelters cannot keep up with the numbers of animals that are brought to them.
