Too often, lost pets are unable to be reunited with their owners because of out-of-date contact information associated with a microchip. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) are teaming up to encourage pet owners to update their contact information on National Check the Chip Day.
A microchip is convenient, safe, and reliable. Many veterinarians and animal shelters are actively working to inform pet owners about microchipping. Microchips greatly increase the chances that you’ll get your per back if he or she ever becomes lost or even stolen. But a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate.
We encourage all our pet owners to make sure their pet’s microchip’s information is current and up-to-date.
Animal Medical Clinic wants to help. Come visit with your pet (no appointment necessary) so that we can scan your pet’s microchip. We want to make sure we have their microchip number in our system and the information associated with it is your current contact information.
