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.

What we talk about on this episode:

  • What is a microchip?
  • How do you register your pet’s microchip?
  • How do you update your pet’s microchip?
  • and more…
