The Importance of Pet Microchipping

Montrose Veterinary Clinic Explains Importance of Pet Microchipping

Microchipping is the method of implanting a microchip into an animal to enable its tracking and identification when it gets lost.

The microchip contains a unique digital number assigned to that pet, to identify that particular animal. It also carries the details of the owner like their names and addresses. The microchip is implanted in the pet using a needle and a syringe, just like the normal vaccination.

They Are the Safest and More Secure Method

These microchips are very small in size and they are placed beneath the skin of that pet. This means that, if your pet is stolen, it can be tracked and found easily because the thief may be unaware of the microchip’s presence.

Unlike identification tags which can be destroyed easily by the thieves, microchips will require surgical procedures by specialized personnel to remove it. Therefore, pet microchips are the surest way to protect your pet from getting lost.

They are Reliable and Efficient

All microchips are registered with national registries, and they should bear the details of their owners. This information will help whoever that finds the pet to reach you. If the microchip is constantly updated and more contact information about you included, then the chances of finding your pet increases.

Since there are more emergency lines you are required to provide, you can be assured of finding your pet even if you are away from your hometown.

It Is an Easy and Harmless Procedure

You are only required to purchase a microchip and provide your details in it. You can then hire a veterinary that will implant the chip beneath the pet’s skin. Implanting the microchip is harmless to the animal due to its small size, and the method of implantation used. Therefore, you should embrace Microchipping as an identification method for all your pets.
