Many pet owners underestimate the importance of having their pets microchipped, either believing that their pet will never get lost or that a quick neighborhood search will locate their missing dog or cat. Unfortunately, pets can escape your home or car and wonder beyond your sight fairly quickly. Getting your pet a microchip can help improve the odds of your pet being found and returned to you.
Benefits of Having Your Pet Microchipped in Montebello
No pet owner wants to go through the anxiety and fear of having a pet go missing, but both cats and dogs sometimes escape their homes and vehicles. A microchip can help return your pet to you if he or she becomes lost. Most rescues, shelters, veterinarians and animal hospitals have the ability to scan your pet’s microchip and retrieve your pet’s identification number, which helps speed up the process of reuniting your pet with your family. In addition, when your pet becomes lost, all you have to do is notify your chip manufacturer. Flyers and alerts will be sent to all the local shelters and veterinarians to alert them that your pet is missing.
