Microchipping: A Lifesaving Solution for Lost Pets
We understand that unforeseen circumstances can lead to our pets going missing. In such cases, microchipping can be a lifesaver.
Our microchipping in Paducah, Kentucky, provides a simple and easy way to ensure that your pet can be quickly reunited with you if they get lost. Additionally, for travel purposes, some countries, including those in the European Union, require pets to be microchipped.
During the microchipping process, a small electronic chip is injected under your pet’s skin with a large needle. Sedation is usually unnecessary, and it is similar to receiving a vaccine. When a scanner is passed over the area, it sends radio waves that activate the chip, sending a unique identification number to the scanner. This number is specific to your pet, serving as a sort of social security number for animals.
To ensure a smooth process, pet owners should update their personal information with their microchip provider. In case of a lost pet, immediately contact the microchip provider to report your lost pet.
