Millions of pets go missing every year and out of those pets only 22% ever make it back home. Microchip implanting your pet is a great way to ensure that your companion has every opportunity to return home. A small microchip is implanted beneath your pet's skin that bears a number specific to your pet. This number is held in a database that and is associated with your contact information. This microchip does not emit information, and is not a tracking device. When a pet is found and is brought into a shelter or veterinary hospital, the pet is scanned for a microchip. Once scanned, the microchip number and company will show on the scanner. Then the company can be called and contact can be made with you, so you can be reunited with your pet. It is very important that you keep your contact information up to date on the microchip company website, as this is the only way your pet can be reunited with you!
