One of the worst feelings pet owners ever experience is the realization that their pet has gone missing. Only 17% of runaway dogs and 2% of cats make it back to their owners. But your pet doesn’t have to be a statistic.
Frankfort Animal Clinic wants to encourage you to consider microchipping your pet, even if they live entirely indoors–because even indoor pets can escape and become lost. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life. Microchips are also rated for 25 years, meaning they never need to be removed or recharged during your pet’s lifetime.
Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless, and very affordable. Once implanted, authorities need only scan the chip to locate your information. But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated.
As an added bonus, our new microchips also monitor your pet’s body temperature, allowing us to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for vaccinations without obtaining his or her temperature rectally.
Frankfort Animal Clinic believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet recovery available, reuniting more than 15,000 lost pets with their owners every month. To get your pet “chipped,” request an appointment online or call us at 502-227-9611.
