Animal Care: 3 Benefits of Microchipping Your Pet, Ewa, Hawaii

At some point or another, you’ve probably overheard a heated conversation about pets and microchips. While still a relatively newer practice, microchipping animals has actually proven to be an extremely useful way to identify lost and abandoned pets as well as provide more efficient animal care. In fact, the veterinarians at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital strongly recommend considering a microchip if your pet doesn’t already have one.

While most pets have microchips implanted prior to adoption, some older animals may still need one, so it’s a good idea to talk to your vet about how to get the process started. If you’re uneasy about microchipping, consider these three benefits that it can offer:

  • Easier Identification: Most microchips are encoded with pertinent information about a pet and its owner. For instance, if you were to have your pet microchipped today, the microchip would contain a unique identification number, your pet’s name and description, and your contact details in case of an emergency.
  • Round-The-Clock Assistance: Some microchip registries offer 24-hour assistance, so you can rely on them whenever there's a pet emergency. These registries will provide you with round-the-clock support, advice, and assistance if your pet suddenly becomes ill or goes missing. 
  • Peace of Mind: Most importantly, microchipping your pet gives you the peace of mind you need when juggling the responsibilities of pet ownership. With the advanced technology and increased security of a microchip, you’ll never have to worry about your pet being lost for long.
