Any pet owner knows the familiar feeling of horror when they are uncertain as to the location of their furry little friend. That heart-freezing moment where they think their pet is lost can be a very traumatic experience. It is a proven fact that the longer a pet is missing, the less likely it is that they will be found and returned to their home. Only about 14% of all pets that get lost end up finding their way home. This is a dismal statistic.

Part of the reason that pets get lost and never find their way home is because they have no kind of identification, or any way for another person to know where the pet belongs. They are most likely often just considered a stray with no home. Others will simply be captured and brought to an animal shelter, where they will either find a new home, or even face the possibility of euthanization. This possibility could be prevented with the installation of a microchip.
If you have nightmares about your pet being lost, it is probably a good idea to invest in a microchip. A microchip is a device that is about the size of a grain of rice. It can be easily placed under the skin in just a few seconds through a simple procedure. This device requires no power source and can be used by animal control or a veterinarian to identify things like the name, breed, address, and phone number of the pet.
The Springbrook Animal Care Center,LLC is a veterinarian clinic that has used microchips in the past to help locate a lost pet and return that pet to their rightful owners.
