If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society or another vet clinic, the humane society will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. It is very important that you keep your personal information associated with your pet’s microchip up-to-date to ensure that this system works as it should. You will also be asked to provide emergency contact information in the event that you are not available.
We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet, as collars can easily become lost. Please make sure your pet is scanned during the annual check up to assure the chip is in place. Update your records due to change of address or ownership.
Thank you to BARRHAVEN VETERINARY HOSPITAL for this information and Dr. Karen for her great video on micro-chipping your cat and dog.
