Only about 20 percent of shelter dogs are reunited with their original owners, but thanks to veterinary technology, you can greatly increase those odds. All you need to do is take your pet to the vet”s office to have a personalized microchip implanted just under the skin. These chips contain contact information that can help get your furry friend back to you safe and sound.
Take Dora, for example. She was lost for seven months, but thanks to her microchip, she was reunited with her family.
Fortunately for Dora, her story reached an incredible end. But for thousands of others, the prospect of seeing their families again is grim.
Make sure to ask your local vet about microchipping. It could save your pet”s life.
