If your pet has ever gone missing you understand what a terrible and helpless feeling it is to be separated from your furry family member. Identification collars can fall off a lost pet, and posting pictures on social media often does not produce the best results. Fortunately, there is a permanent form of pet identification available at Briarwood Animal Hospital known as a microchip.
A microchip is a tiny electronic device that is approximately the size of a grain of rice that is inserted under the skin and between the shoulder blades of each dog or cat. If your pet becomes lost or separated from you, most veterinary clinics, shelters, and pounds have microchip readers. Microchip readers can determine the unique code assigned to your pet with your contact information.
Microchips can greatly increase the opportunity to be reunited with your precious pet in the event they wander and become lost. Have your constant companion microchipped today by calling Briarwood Animal Hospital at 601-956-5030 today!
