Participate in National Check the Chip Day on August 15
August 15th is National Check the Chip Day. All you have to do to participate is either bring your pet into our veterinarians in Madisonville LA for a chip scan and receive a lesson on how to update your contact information with your pet’s microchip manufacturer or log in to your online microchip account and double-check for pet’s contact information.
Importance of Pet Microchipping in Madisonville
RFID pet microchips are permanent pet tags our vets in Madisonville can implant under your pet’s skin. Pet microchipping in Madisonville is extremely helpful in helping return lost pets to their owners, and many pet chipping manufacturers offer assistance in finding lost pets by sending out fliers and photos of your missing pet, which helps find your pet faster. Some even offer travel assistance for pets that are found out-of-state.
Keeping Your Pet’s Microchip Information Up-To-Date
When your pet is implanted with a chip to find lost pets, the information is updated with your current phone number, location, and information about your pet. If you change numbers or move, you need to update your information. Otherwise, if your pet becomes lost, our veterinarian in Madisonville or another veterinarian, rescue or shelter will not be able to contact you to return your lost pet.
Bring Your Pet to Our Madisonville Animal Hospital for Check the Chip Day
Our veterinarians want to help you keep your RFID pet microchips up to date. For that reason, we encourage you to bring your pet to our Madisonville animal hospital to check their chip. Our veterinarians in Madisonville LA will scan your pet to make sure he or she has a chip, and show you how to keep your pet’s information up-to-date.
To schedule an appointment for pet chipping, also known as a microchip or permanent pet tags, with our vets in Madisonville, contact us at 985-845-7484.
