Home Again Microchip
If your pet gets lost, a microchip can help them find their way home.
Why should you microchip your pet?
According to PetFinder, over 10 million pets go missing each year, with one out of every three going missing at some point in their lives. If your pet goes missing and is found, any vet or shelter can use a special microchip scanner to find out important information about your pet and get in touch with you as soon as possible for a reunion. In one study, microchipped pets were found to be 52% more likely to be recovered, compared to only 22% of the time for pets without microchips. If you move or change your contact information at any time, please notify your microchip company so that the information can be updated as soon as possible.
