August 15th is Check the Chip Day

RSS Feed

Posted on 08-11-2017

Pet microchipping is a simple procedure - our veterinarian injects a microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required.

Microchips greatly increase the chances your pet will be if they are lost or stolen. However, a microchip will only work if the information linked to the chip is correct.

Stop by Richland Animal Clinic on  August 15th to have your pet’s microchip scanned to ensure its accuracy.

Why should you microchip?

  • Over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year
  • 1 in 3 pets get lost at least once in their lifetime
  • Only about 22% of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52%!

Stop by on August 15th to have your pet’s microchip scanned to ensure its accuracy.
