Join host Michele Forto as she discusses is your dog microchipped?
on Dog Works Radio
In addition to regular check-ups at the veterinarian and annual vaccinations, you should always ensure that your pet’s microchip information is up to date. “Microchipping is a good idea for all pets, even those who are strictly indoors such as indoor cats,” explains Dr. Stephanie Sheen, DVM, a Fuzzy veterinarian. “Although we may think our pets would never get out of our house, yard, kennel, and so on, those things do happen, even to the most well-meaning and careful of us.” Therefore, you should keep your microchip information updated. If your information is old or incorrect, it could delay the reunion.
