Microchipping is the most effective means of identification for your pet. Unlike collars or tags, microchipping is permanent. Similar to a vaccine, microchipping is quick, safe and causes little pain.
Most vet clinics and shelters are equipped with handheld scanners that are used to check animals for chips. If the pet. Has a chip the scanner will transmit the ID number allowing the owners information to be accessed from the manufacturer. At Crooked Tails we register all microchips we implant using the information provided by the owner. Owners are free to go in and change or update their information at any time to keep their contact info correct.
We recently reunited a cat who had been missing for nearly two years with this surprised and very elated family.
