Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. Only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats make it back to their owners—which can make it feel like you’ll never see your pet again if they get lost.
Society Hill Veterinary Hospital wants to encourage you to consider microchipping your pet, even if they live entirely indoors–because even indoor pets can escape and become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life.
Microchipping is Easy & Simple
Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless, and very affordable. Once implanted, a microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information and can be scanned by any authorities so that they can return your pet directly to you. But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated.
Society Hill Veterinary Hospital believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet recovery available, helping reunite more than 15,000 lost pets to their owners every month.
