Prairie Du Chien Veterinarian Shares 3 Reasons to Microchip Your Pet, Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin

Even the most conscientious pet owners can end up with a missing dog or cat. There is no foolproof way to prevent your pets from getting out, but, with microchipping, you can ensure they will find their way back home should they go missing. Below, the compassionate veterinarians at Tender Care Animal Hospital in Prairie Du Chien, WI, shares three reasons to microchip your pets.

Why Your Veterinarian Wants You to Microchip Your Pets

1. Permanent

Your dog might wear a collar with identifying tags, but what if they escaped without it? Then there would be no way for anyone who finds your faithful companion to identify them. Once your pets are microchipped, they will always have their identifying information on them, and you can have peace of mind knowing all it takes is a quick scan with a special reader to reunite the two of you.

2. Cost-Effective

veterinarianMicrochipping is something you only need to do once, and it lasts forever. When owners lose pets that are not microchipped, they spend time and resources tracking them down. The costs associated with calling around, visiting local shelters, and hanging up posters can add up quickly. 

3. Potentially Lifesaving

Do you always carry your wallet whenever you walk your dog? If something were to happen to you while out with your pets and you did not have any identifying information on you, your dog’s microchip could provide the data that first responders need to notify your loved ones.

If you want to protect your pets by microchipping them, turn to a veterinarian at Tender Care Animal Hospital in Prairie Du Chien.
