The Importance of Microchipping Your Pets

Did you know that only 17% of lost dogs and 2% of lost cats make it back to their owners?

All Dogs & Cats Veterinary Hospital – New Castle wants to encourage you to consider microchipping your pet, even if they live entirely indoors–because even indoor pets can escape and become lost. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life. Microchips are also rated for 25 years, meaning they never need to be removed or recharged during your pet’s lifetime.

Is Microchipping My Dog or Cat Safe?

Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless and very affordable. Once implanted, authorities only need to scan the chip to locate your information. But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated. It is vital that you update your pet’s microchip with any change of address or new phone number.

All Dogs & Cats Veterinary Hospital – New Castle believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet recovery available, helping reunite more than 15,000 lost pets to their owners every month.
