Why Should you Microchip your Pet?

Over the span of one year over 10 million pets go missing in the United States, many of those pets end up in shelters but only a small percentage of them are microchipped. Microchipping your pet can be the difference between a lost and found pet. A microchip is the only permanent way of identifying a lost pet.  

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a small rice sized device that is inserted directly under the pets skin. Though it is not a GPS tracker, but rather a form of identification where you can register your contact information, as well as important information about your pet.
