No pet parent ever wants to imagine a scenario in which their animal companion becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen. The most effective way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of identification, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a tiny device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information will be stored. Should your pet become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information obtained during this scan can then help safely reunite you both for a happy ending.
Implanting a microchip is fast, easy and virtually painless. The process is completed using a sterile syringe, similar to a vaccine. Once implanted, the chip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll no longer have to worry about what might happen to your pet should you become separated.
Don’t take chances with your pet’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Safford Veterinary Services to learn more.
