Each year, many pets wander and get lost from households in the greater Cincinnati area, as well as across the country. Fortunately, permanent identification is available that offers your pet the best opportunity to be returned to you if your precious pet becomes lost. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is inserted under your pet’s skin and will identify them when placed under a microchip reader. Most veterinary practices and local shelters have a microchip reader required to read the microchip and identify your pet. Microchipping is an effective and cost-efficient method of having your furry family member returned in the event they are separated from you. Call Lewis Animal Hospital to schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped today!
