Getting your pet microchipped is something that every pet owner should consider. Over the course of the next two blogs, we will look at four reasons why microchipping your pets is important.
IT IS MORE RELIABLE THAN A COLLAR TAG
A collar tag is something that all pets should have. It should include at least two contact phone numbers, your pet’s name, and the city you live in. But even with all of the right info, an ID tag is useless if it somehow gets separated from your pet. This is where the microchip advantage lies. While there are a hundred different ways that an ID tag might be ripped off of a collar, and another hundred ways that a collar might get separated from your dog, there is no scenario where you dog will become separated from their microchip. It is far and away the most secure method for ensuring that your dog has identifying information with them at all times.
IT IS INEXPENSIVE
Many people are scared away from microchipping their pet because they believe that the procedure is too expensive. The good news is that microchipping is actually extremely affordable. It is also something that you only have to do once. Regardless of cost, when compared to the prospect of losing your furry friend, it is a small price to pay.
