Should You Recheck Your Pet’s Microchip at the Vet?
Microchipping your pet is the best way to ensure that you will be reunited in the event that your animal is lost or stolen. Cats without microchips are found after being lost only 1.8% of the time, while cats with microchips make it home to their families in 38.5% of cases. If your pet is not microchipped, talk to your veterinarian in Campbell to find out how you can get a chip implanted as soon as possible.
Of course, the only way a microchip can help your pet is if the information on it is up to date and the chip is registered properly. Checking your pet’s microchip periodically is important. Your pet hospital can scan your pet’s chip and tell you if it is registered and what information appears. If necessary, your animal hospital team can help you update your information so that your pet can be returned to you easily if they go missing.
