There’s no greater fear for a pet parent than having your dog run away, especially during an emergency situation. This is why every pet owner should consider getting their pet microchipped if they haven’t already done so. Animal shelters, animal control officers, and veterinarians routinely look for microchips to return lost pets quickly to their owners, avoiding expenses for housing, food, medical care, outplacement, and euthanasia. Many shelters place chips in all outplaced animals.
If your pet is already microchipped or you’re getting your pet microchipped, make sure the microchip is registered to YOU, the pet parent, as oftentimes it's registered to the person who implanted it. Once you know the chip number you can search it on Google and change any necessary information through the provider (pet parent contact information or medical information, like allergies).
