Every year, thousands of pets go missing from households across the country. Fortunately, permanent identification is available that offers your pet the best chances of being returned to you if they wander from your home. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is virtually painlessly inserted under your pet’s skin and will identify them when placed under a microchip reader. Most veterinary practices and local shelters have a microchip reader to read the microchip and identify your pet. Microchipping is an effective and cost-efficient method of having your pet returned to you in the event they are separated from you. Call Shelby Center Hospital for Animals for an appointment to have your pet microchipped today!
