It’s a sad fact that 1 in 3 pets goes missing sometime during its lifetime. And, even worse, 90% of lost pets that have no identification never return home. Pet owners may not realize how easy it is to lose a pet. Fortunately, microchipping your pet is an easy way to protect them, giving them a chance to be reunited with their family.
Many people do not understand how microchips work, so we will provide a brief explanation. Here’s how it works:
Microchipping is a relatively inexpensive way to protect your pet if he or she were to be lost. If you adopt a pet from a shelter, it may already have a microchip, and you can either check the adoption paperwork or have the pet scanned for a microchip to reveal the code and register it in your name.
BellyRub Pet Sitting recommends having your pet microchipped. It is a painless procedure that takes only a few seconds, and can save you a lot of heartache by preventing your cat or dog from being permanently lost.
