Microchipping your pet with an Avid pet chip offers several benefits, both for you as a pet owner and for your furry companion.
Unlike collars or tags that can be lost or removed, microchips provide a permanent form of identification for your pet. The Avid pet chip is a small implant that is placed under your pet's skin, typically between the shoulder blades. It contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a microchip reader, allowing shelters, veterinarians, or animal control agencies to identify your pet and contact you.
Quick and Painiless
Microchipping is a quick and relatively painless procedure. The microchip is inserted under the skin using a hypodermic needle, similar to a routine vaccination. The process usually takes only a few minutes and can be done during a regular veterinary visit or even during spaying or neutering procedures.
Microchipping is a relatively low-cost procedure when compared to the potential expenses involved in searching for a lost pet or dealing with legal issues if ownership is disputed. Once your pet is microchipped, the only costs arise when updating client information.
Increased Chance of Reunited
In the unfortunate event that your pet goes missing or gets lost, a microchip significantly increases the chances of being reunited. Animal shelters and veterinary clinics scan stray pets for microchips, enabling them to quickly identify the owner and facilitate the return of the lost pet. Microchips make it more likely for pets to be returned to their owners. A study of more than 7,700 stray animals at animal shelters found that dogs without microchips were returned to their owners 21.9 percent of the time, while microchipped dogs were returned 52.2 percent of the time.
Avid pet chips, like other microchips, are designed to be compatible with most microchip scanners used by animal shelters, veterinary clinics, and animal control agencies. This means that regardless of where your pet may end up, the chances of their microchip being detected and read are high, increasing the likelihood of being reunited with you.
