Pets are more likely to become lost in the summer since they spend more time outside and in unfamiliar areas. Microchip implants can help reunite lost pets with their owners, so Pet Medical Center of Edmond recommends having your pet microchipped. Not only are microchips effective, they’re permanent, too. You’ll never have to worry about your pet’s microchip falling off, like you do with a collar.
When your pet is brought to a veterinarian or animal shelter or found by animal control, authorities only need to scan the chip to pull up your contact information and let you know that your pet has been found. If your pet is already microchipped, now is a good time to check your pet’s chip and make sure your contact information is up to date.
Pet Medical Center of Edmond believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet identification available, as it helps reunite more than 15,000 lost pets with their owners every month.
You can schedule an appointment to get your pet microchipped online or by calling us at 405-757-2132.
