The Benefits of Microchipping from the Animal Clinic Of Honolulu
At the Animal Clinic Of Honolulu, we know that pet owners want to make sure that their pet is able to be returned if he or she gets lost. That is why our veterinarian team recommends microchipping for pets. There are a few benefits that everyone should know.
The Benefits of Microchipping a Pet
If someone is taking care of a pet, it is important to make sure he or she has a microchip implanted. There are a few major benefits of having a pet microchipped. These include:
Identifying a Lost Pet: This is the biggest benefit of having a pet microchipped. If the pet wanders off, usually it can end up at a shelter. The first thing that shelters normally do is scan for a microchip. If they find one they know who it belongs to and how to get ahold of the pet owner.
Natural Disasters: One of the most common reasons why pets are lost has to do with natural disasters. In the event of a disaster, there is a lot of commotion and pets can become separated from their owners relatively easily. Following a natural disaster, pets who are microchipped can be returned to their owners quickly.
Lasts a Lifetime: Most pet owners buy their dogs and cats collars and add a name tag with the pet’s name and their phone number. These are great but outdated. They can easily break, fall off, or even the name or phone number can wear off of the tag over time. The microchip is permanent, once implanted, you don’t have to worry about them, although it is a good idea to have your vet scan your pet each year to guard against any malfunction.
These are only a few of the many benefits that come with having a pet microchipped. Make sure every pet is well taken care of with a microchip.
