You love your pet like a member of the family. You provide a loving, stable, happy home. Yet one day, the worst happens. You look all around the house and you can’t find your pet. They’re not outside, either.
Where could they have gotten to? It’s not uncommon for pets to get out and virtually disappear. If they still have their collar on (and if it includes identifying information), there’s a chance you could find them. But what if you could increase the likelihood of your pet being returned to you if they ever get lost? You can with what’s known as pet microchipping.
What Is Pet Microchipping?
Pet microchipping in Rancho Cucamonga is a chip the size of a grain of rice injected via a needle into your pet. After being implanted into your pet, life goes on as normal after that. Though, if your pet ever gets lost the microchip acts as a beacon. Those who have microchip scanners, such as pet rescue organizations, kennels, adoption agencies, and a vet in Rancho Cucamonga can detect the microchip in your pet with an RFID scanner.
The chip has identifying information stored in a database, such as the name of the pet, their home address, a phone number to contact, and sometimes even the name of the owner. Once your pet is recovered by someone with a microchip scanner, they can contact you back home and coordinate a plan to bring your pet to you. Microchipping even works across state lines.
How a Chip Helps Find Pets if They’re Lost
There are two major reasons to consider pet microchipping in Rancho Cucamonga. The first has to do with getting your pet back home. We all know someone who lost a pet and furiously putting up fliers around the neighborhood, launching a search, yet never seeing their beloved pet again. It happens. With microchipping, the likelihood of finding your pet dramatically increases.
The second reason has to do with the homeless pet population. If your pet is picked up off the streets while lost and they have no identifying information, they could be adopted or euthanized. There are enough homeless pets as it is but microchipping your pet identifies them as yours so they don’t get lost in the system.
