About Pik-A-Pup Kennel

Should You Microchip Your Pet?

According to a popular pet safety website, the awful truth is that one in three pets goes missing during its lifetime. Sadly, some of those lost pets will never return home. One of the most crushing realizations you can experience as a pet owner is that your beloved puppy has wandered off and probably won’t be found. Now, however, there are options available to help reunite you with your animal. In recent years, many pet owners and kennels have embraced the idea of placing microchips into cats and dogs to increase the likelihood that if lost, they will find their way back home.

At Pik-A-Pup Kennel, where Massachusetts residents will find adorable puppies for sale, the staff feels so strongly about the advantages of microchipping pets that all of their puppies are microchipped. According to the experts at Pik-A-Pup Kennel, there is one huge advantage to having your dog microchipped and that is, of course, that if your dog ever gets lost or stolen, you will have a much higher chance of recovering your puppy. Currently, this is the only way to ID a dog without tags, and it has proven very successful. Best of all, the entire process is quick and completely painless for your pet. The microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is injected into the dog between its shoulders just as if it were getting a vaccination. Because the chip has no power source, it is completely passive and will not affect your dog at all. When you take your puppy home, you can register your information online with the chip manufacturer. The premise behind the idea of a microchip is that if your dog is ever found and brought to a veterinarian or animal shelter, the dog will be scanned and the microchip ID number will appear. The microchip manufacturer will be contacted and told that the dog has been found. Someone will then check the dog’s records and contact you to let you know where to pick up your pet. And, if you ever move or need to change your information for any reason, you can easily access the microchip company’s registry online and update your phone number or address as needed. Just think: One small device can help reunite pets and their families more reliably and faster than ever before. It sounds like the perfect way to a very happy ending.
