Microchip Your Pets Before Your Busy Summer

Microchip Your Pets Before Your Busy Summer

One out of every three pets will become lost at some point in their lives, and 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 these lost pets with their owners. 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.

Once it is placed, the chip transmits radio waves that include a tracking number. When your pet is brought to a veterinarian or animal shelter or found by animal control, authorities plug your pet’s microchip ID into a database and, from there, pull up your contact information and let you know that your pet has been found.

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.
