Your cat or dog will be considerably more likely to be returned to you if it has a microchip!
Giving Pets a Voice with Microchips
A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the size of a grain of rice. When an animal is found and taken to a shelter or veterinary hospital, one of the first things they do is scan the animal for a microchip. The chip transmits the identification number to a scanner, which displays the number on the screen. If they find a microchip, and if the microchip registry has accurate information, they can quickly find the animal’s owner.
No surgery or anesthesia is required for microchip implantation—a microchip can be implanted during an office visit. If your pet is already under anesthesia for a procedure the microchip can be implanted while they are under anesthesia.

Remember to keep your registration information up-to-date. If you’ve recently moved, or if any of your information (especially your phone number) has changed, make sure you update your microchip registration in the PetLink database (www.petlink.net) as soon as possible.
