Importance of Pet Microchipping

Importance of Pet Microchipping

According to a report from PetFinder, one in three pets will go missing at some time or another. If you have ever had a pet, you probably don't find those numbers all that surprising. Knoxville is a big place with a lot of exploring to do, and our dogs and cats are just itching to see what is out there. Our job is to make sure they do not get lost along the way, and microchipping can be a major help in that regard.

Microchipping Is Incredibly Important

Microchipping is sort of like the dog tag of the future. Like a tag, it carries all the relevant information someone will need to get your friend back to you safe and sound. They can take your animal to the vet, and the vet will take care of the rest.

Unlike a tag, it won't come off while your dog is crawling under a chain-link fence, it won't wear flat over the years and become unreadable, and it can hold a lot more information than a tag.

Is Microchipping Safe?

A microchip takes seconds to implant, and it is no bigger than a grain of rice. If you're worried your pet will find it uncomfortable or that there may be complications in the procedure, we're here to let you know it's completely safe, and won't adversely affect your animal's life at all.

If your dog or cat can handle getting their shots, they can handle getting a microchip. It is a non-invasive procedure that will buy you some peace of mind next time your little buddy strays.
