Today is National Check the Chip Day!
It is a day dedicated to reminding pet owners to microchip their pets and ensure that if their pet does have a microchip it is up to date. More often than not, microchipping is inexpensive and can mean a world of difference in finding your pet should they ever become lost and lose their collar. Here is a quick infographic from the American Veterinary Medical Association that details how microchipping can make a huge difference in recovering a lost pet. They also have a fantastic resource on how to update your pet’s microchip. Make sure to ‘Check The Chip’ today and if your pet is in need of a microchip, please visit HSNEGA’s Healthy Pet Clinic Tuesday-Friday 9:30-6:00 pm or Saturday 9:30-1:30 pm. You can also visit HSNEGA.org/wellness-clinic for a list of the Healthy Pet Clinics services.
