Social media plays a huge part in getting pets reunited with their owners. When a dog or cat goes missing, the owners often post a pic of the pet to social media, asking for neighbourhood help.
The first question that anyone asks is always going to be:
‘Is your pet microchipped?’
There is no reason not to microchip your animals. Microchipping is:-
- A once-off procedure.
- Takes a few seconds.
- Lasts a lifetime.
- Is not expensive.
When you get a new dog or cat, the first thing you should do, together with vaccinations, is a microchip. And if you get a rescue animal, the first thing you should do, again together with vaccinations, is check for a microchip.
If the animal doesn’t have one, get it done as quickly as you can.
