A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. According to the American Humane Association, about 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen every year. A study published by the American Veterinary Medical Association revealed that dogs and cats with microchips were overwhelmingly more likely to be returned to their families than pets without them.
That is why the team at Wind River Veterinary Service considers microchips a fundamental way to protect your pet and as an important part of responsible pet ownership. Your pet’s microchip registers them with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated anytime your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned anywhere in the world and traced back to you.
This safe, reliable, and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save your pet and you days, weeks, and months of fear and anguish.
