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.

Vets and staff are amazing. They care very deeply about every pet's health and wellbeing. You can tell they love their jobs. They take their time to explain every detail and go through as many options as possible and help you work with your budget when possible.
