What You Should Know About Microchipping in San Francisco

May is Chip Your Pet Month, and it's a terrific opportunity to learn more about the importance of microchipping. According to research, roughly one-third of companion animals will be separated from their pet parents by theft or getting lost at some point during their life. Sadly, most will never make it back home. 

While there are numerous things you can certainly do to keep your fur baby safe, catastrophe can strike any household. Microchipping your pet is a {good way} to improve the odds of finding them if they ever disappear. The skilled vets at 4Paws Mobile Veterinary Services provide efficient and effective microchipping for companion animals in San Francisco and the surrounding areas and are here to help you protect your furry friend. Here are a few things you need to know about pet microchipping. 

The Microchipping Procedure

The microchipping procedure is fast and feels like getting a vaccination. Similar in size to a grain of rice, the chip is usually placed between the animal's shoulder blades. A syringe is used to quickly inject the microchip, so anesthesia is not required. It takes only a few moments and no recovery time is needed. 

Microchips are completely safe and don't contain personal information. Instead, each chip has an ID number that's linked to an account that contains your personal info. If you move or get a new phone number, you can update your contact information online.

The Benefits of Microchipping

Microchipping your beloved pet significantly boosts the chances of being able to find them if they ever get lost. If your dog or cat is brought into a veterinary office or shelter, they will be scanned for a chip. As long as you keep your contact information up to date, the person scanning your pet will be able to contact you and reunite you with your beloved companion.
