Reasons For Microchipping Your Cat

  • Permanent identification linking you to your pet - it is easy to update with current contact information as needed. If your pet is lost/stolen and its collar is removed, a vet/shelter can still return your pet home.
  • Your pet is more likely to be returned to you in a timely manner saving you and your pet time and stress 
  • Microchips help animal shelters avoid the unnecessary expense of boarding an animal that belongs to a loving home.
  • Can be used as proof of ownership if pet is ever lost or stolen, if ownership is ever in question
  • All International travel requires microchip identification of all pets to cross-reference with health certificates and vaccines.
