Microchipping your pets will protect them. It also helps make sure that they can be brought home if they are ever lost. They might want to explore the outdoor world, even if they are an indoor kitty or puppy. Here are some of the reasons why the microchip is a good idea.
It Saves Them
Keeping your furry pals safe is always important. While it’s true that they can eventually find their way home, adding a microchip can help them not get hurt and come back home in good shape. They might be taken to a shelter and then readopted, especially if they are considered to be strays. If anyone else rescues your pet, the microchip can tell them where to find you and return your furry family member!
Helps Build a Bond
Putting in a microchip can also help you build a bond with your pets. Plus the chip makes it obvious that they are a part of your family unit. While ID tags help, they’re still not as effective as microchips when it comes to returning lost pets to the homes where they belong. This is one of the biggest reasons to make sure the information is kept up to date – if you have to move, you don’t want your pet to be returned to your previous home when you no longer live there!
Plus, getting your pets chipped now is just good planning. Being proactive in many aspects of life is usually for the best. Just because nothing has happened so far doesn’t mean that it will always hold true. You will still worry if they go missing, but you won’t have to worry as much. On top of that, if they get sick or injured while you are not home, you know that they will be treated safely and brought back to you as soon as possible!
