Microchipping

Lost Pets – Found with Microchipping

Microchipping your pet is one of the surest ways of finding a lost pet. It is easily done anytime, is relatively painless and it’s permanent.

A study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, including 53 animal shelters across the U.S., confirmed the high rate of return of microchipped dogs and cats to their families, and the importance of microchip registration. From the study:

• Only about 22 percent of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase).

• Less than 2 percent of lost cats that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped cats was dramatically higher at over 38 percent (more than 2000 percent better).

• Only 58 percent of the microchipped animals’ microchips had been registered in a database with their pet parent’s contact information.

Did you know only 10% of lost dogs that did not have the microchipping procedure in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina were returned to there owners but 85% of dogs with chips found there owners.

No bigger than a grain of rice or more costly than a month’s supply of pet food, a pet microchip and enrollment in a pet recovery database brings lost pets home and provides peace of mind that your beloved companion will never wander unknown.

We absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

Anytime we go out of town we keep one of our dogs at the boarding portion of the hospital. She LOVES it. After a couple of stays she has realized how much she loves this place and no longer tries to pull us out the door when we arrive (this in my book is a good sign)! She’s always exhausted when we pick her up, so that reassures me that they take the time to play with her and that she doesn’t have any built up energy she needs to release once home as attention was not given. The staff is amazing and take great care of the animals. Also very reasonable pricing on boarding for what they offer!

Dr. Harrington and the rest of the staff were very welcoming to my cat Annie. I brought Annie in on an emergency call and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful . Dr. Harrington constantly let me know what was going on with my cats care. Thank you all very much !
