Thousands and thousands of pets are lost each year, leaving behind their terrified owners. It is devastating for owners when they spend weeks and months looking everywhere for their beloved pet before they give up and face the realization that their favorite pet is not coming home. Unfortunately, it happens way too often.
Luckily, there is something that you can do to ensure that you can easily find your lost pet. Even better, the procedure is quick and easy.
All it takes is a simple visit to the veterinary hospital to get a microchip for your pet. Then, you can avoid the heartache that comes with a lost pet.
Microchipping Is Simple, Fast and Effective
Here at Astoria Veterinary Group, we are very proud to offer microchipping to our clients and their pets. Our goal is to keep their pets safe and at home. If they do get lost, we want them easily returned home. This can be accomplished with a microchip.
How Microchipping Works
Microchipping is a safe procedure that we offer to our clients and their pets. Basically, we insert a tiny chip under the pet’s skin. It is quick and relatively painless.
Once a microchip is implanted, it is important that owners register the chips. If not, your pet will not be able to be returned to you. This doesn’t take much time, but it saves you a lot of heartache.
Anytime that a lost pet is brought in, veterinarians and animal shelters are urged to scan them for a microchip. If one is located, their owner can be found. We truly believe that microchipping is the best way to bring pets home to their owners!
