Every pet owner knows the worry of their four-legged friend getting out of the house and running off. Your pet needs a reliable form of identification that can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. This is where pet microchipping in Little Rock comes in.
A unique microchip about the size and shape of a grain of rice can be placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades in only a few minutes. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip, read the identification number, and contact the pet’s registered owner.
Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens.
