Do You Know Your Pet’s Microchip Number?
When is the last time you updated your registration information – address, phone numbers, or other contact information? Is it accurate?
Feel free to ask one of us at Pet Vet Family Pet Care Center to scan your pet during a wellness exam. We will scan your pet for his/her microchip, look up your pet’s microchip number in the American Animal Hospital Assocation’s (AAHA’s) universal microchip lookup tool, and tell you when you last updated your information!
Microchips greatly increase the chance of getting your pet back if he/she is lost or stolen… but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate. Even if your contact information hasn’t changed, it’s a good idea to double-check that your correct information is included in the microchip registry.
Checking a chip’s registration information is easy, and can mean the difference between heartbreak and a happy family reunion if you ever get separated from your pet. And if you don’t yet have your pet microchipped, there’s no better time than now. Microchipping your pet is simple and painless for your pet. Call us to talk about the benefits of microchipping and to schedule an appointment for your pet.
