Millions of pets go missing every year and out of those pets only 22% ever make it back home. Microchipping your pet is a great way to ensure that your companion has every opportunity to return home. A small microchip is implanted beneath your petís skin. This microchip does not emit information, and is not a tracking device. But the microchip holds a number specific to your pet and the contact info of the microchip company that has your contact information. When a pet is found and is brought into a shelter, or veterinarian, the pet is always scanned for a microchip. Once scanned, the microchip number and company will show on the scanner. Then the company can be called and contact can be made with you, so you can be reunited with your pet.
