One of the most difficult things a pet owner can face is a lost pet. The best way to increase the chances of being reunited with your four-legged friend is to have them microchipped. A microchip is a tiny device that is inserted just beneath the skin and between the shoulder blades of your pet. In the event your pet is lost and brought to another veterinarian or shelter, the chip can be scanned and provide your pet’s unique identification number and traced back to you. Microchipping is simple and no more painful than most vaccinations. The doctors at Vicksburg Animal Hospital recommend microchipping all of your pets.
