The Importance of Microchipping

There is no doubt that your pet means as much to you as any family member. For this reason, microchipping your pet is something you should seriously consider. Pets that go missing who are microchipped have a significantly higher return rate to their owners when compared to non-chipped animals. If you live in Bossier City, LA, or one of the surrounding communities, contact Jimmie Davis Highway Animal Hospital for pet microchipping and other veterinary services.

Identification That Can’t Get Lost

Accidents happen. Sometimes our furry friends can get out of the yard and can’t find their way back home. If your pet ends up in an animal hospital or a veterinarian's office, he or she may be missing a tag or collar. Without proper identification, stray pets can be very difficult to track down even under the best circumstances. Veterinary care experts have been trained to always scan for an identification microchip implanted just below the skin. The microchip contains a special number that can be referenced in a national database allowing the vet to track down the proper owner.

Prove Your Pet is Yours

It is not unheard of for pets to get stolen. In some cases, the thief will lie and say the pet belongs to him or her. The best way to prove your ownership to the authorities is to have a microchip in your pet that identifies you as the proper owner. This may be the only way to prove that the pet is yours when law enforcement becomes involved in the situation. 

Modern Convenience

Technology has come a long way since microchips were first invented. The implantation process is quick and easy and the chip itself is no larger than a grain of rice. The process hurts only as much as a regular shot and although it might not be pleasant, it can prevent the permanent loss of your pet if he or she becomes lost.
