With their latest guide, titled “The Importance of A Microchip For Dogs,” “Dog Care And You” aim to give readers a better understanding of microchipping and help them make an informed decision whether to invest in this tracking device. The report suggests that this method of identification is suitable for both small and large breeds, as well as for cats enjoying the outdoors.

“Dog Care And You” issued the report in response to the high number of pets that go missing each year in the USA, leaving their owners to feel panicky and frustrated. According to statistics, one in three pets will get lost at some point during their life, with only 23% of lost dogs or cats being safely returned to their homes.

The guide states that although no one can insure against every lost-dog situation, pet lovers can increase the odds of being reunited with their furry friends by inserting a microchip under their dog’s skin. Unlike collars, which can break or fall off easily, this rice-sized device will stay with the pet forever. The chip keeps the owner’s contact information that links the dog back to them, maximizing the likelihood of a pet’s recovery.

Implanting a chip underneath a pet’s skin is a quick and pain-free procedure performed by veterinarians. According to the guide, most vet offices and shelters are now equipped with microchip scanners that retrieve the personal details of the rightful pet parent. The microchip’s unique number is kept in a national database, meaning that a dog can be tracked even if it crosses over state lines.

“Dog Care And You” also list a few drawbacks to having a pet microchipped. In rare cases, a chip may move from its original location elsewhere in the pet’s body, misleading veterinarians into thinking that the dog has not been chipped, not contacting the owner as a result. Another disadvantage is the incapability of some scanners to read chips of particular brands.
