According to PetFinder, over 10 million pets go missing every year, and one in three pets will go missing at some point in their life. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. Microchipping is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely.
A microchip is a tiny device which contains unique identifying information about a pet. It is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and it contains a 15-digit number which is registered on a national database. This number corresponds to the contact information of the pet’s owner so that missing pets can be returned to their rightful home as quickly as possible.
Halloween is the second most common holiday for pets to get lost. Proper identification can ensure that your treasured companion gets back home if the worst happens. At Animal Medical Center of Wyoming, we can outfit your pet with a rabies tag, identification tag, and a microchip.
For a limited time (ending on Nov. 11, 2017), we’re offering microchips for just $29. Make sure your pet is up-to-date in case an unfortunate incident may occur.
