How Pet Microchip Service Helps Bring Your Puppy, Dog, Cat or Kitten Home
According to statistics, 50 percent more dogs and 30 percent more cats have returned home thanks to this innovative technology. This active radio-frequency identification devices (RFIDs) are passive devices meaning they are only active when scanned by a vet or pet shelter. If a chip is present, an ID number is disclosed by the chip, allowing the ‘finding’ party to contact a secure and confidential database company who can then contact the rightful pet owners. In turn, pet owners must simply present an authorized registration certificate given by the vet who installed the chip to reclaim their pet.
Additional Benefits of Pet Microchipping with a Lafayette Veterinary Clinic
ID implant chips are quick, painless, affordable and pets typically suffer no symptoms of side effects. For about the cost of an annual wellness exam, your pet can be afforded a permanent ID tag that doesn’t fall off or get lost like collar tags often do. The procedure takes less than a minute to perform and causes no discomfort beyond that of a normal vaccination. In fact, there is no anesthesia necessary for this in-office procedure.
RFID chips are about the size of a tiny rice grain, and your pet will not even be aware of its presence. The younger you have your pet chipped, the better you can sleep at night knowing you’ve increased their chances of recovery. Fortunately, most pets can be chipped at four weeks of age. Microchips are self-contained, maintenance-free and typically last the lifetime of your pet!
