Your animal’s tag’s are a must. The use of an animal ID chip is even better. Lack of any ID tags or devices means as few as 14% of pets ever find their way home after getting lost. Regular tag IDs are a minimum for local cases and fortunately, microchipping allows for the pet to have a far greater chance of making it back to its owner no matter how far away it is when found.
About the size of a rice grain, a microchip is inserted under the skin in less than a second. It needs no battery and can be scanned by a vet or an animal control officer quickly.
Be sure to register the chip ID with the chip’s maker. A current registration is the vital last step in making certain your pet can always find his way home.
