Because your pet is such an essential part of your family, it is crucial to ensure that they can safely return to your home if they are lost. While a collar may seem like a sufficient way to keep track of your dog and provide contact information if they are lost, it can be easily removed, scratched, or altered, leaving your pet without your information and no way to return home. As you are preparing for 2019, consider these key reasons to microchip your dog in the new year.
A Microchip is Permanent I.D for Your Dog
Collars are crucial for walking your dog and providing your contact information on a nametag. However, if your dog’s collar is removed, there will be no way for someone to identify them as yours. Not only is microchipping tiny and discreet, but they are also a permanent form of identification for your dog. With this, if your dog is ever lost without a collar, they can be easily returned to you.
A Microchip Provides Contact Information if Your Dog is Found
Without a collar or a microchip, there is no way for someone to identify you as your dog’s owner. A microchip can provide a veterinarian with your contact information if your dog is found without a collar. This contact information will allow you to be quickly reunited with your pet and will help to eliminate any uncertainty of who the dog belongs to.
A Microchip is a Modern Name Tag for Your Dog
In addition to being small and convenient, a microchip also serves as a modern name tag for your dog. Should someone find your dog, they will be able to identify your dog and you as the owner. Why not opt for a more modernized option than a collar? With a microchip, you’ll never need to worry about a missing collar or name tag again.
