SAN DIEGO COUNTY, California – The San Diego Human Society encouraged pets to microchip their pets on Thursday, May, at the National Chip Your Pet Month.
If the pet is already under microscopy, SDHS officials said, pet owners must also confirm that chip-related connection information is available.
One in three animals will be lost at some point in their lives. Every year, the San Diego Human Society receives nearly 15,000 stray pets, and only 25% of them are reunited with their families. According to current information, the microchip և labeled collar will improve the chances of returning home if a pet is lost or stolen.
“The microchip looks like a digital chain,” said Essa Des Lauries, CEO of the San Diego Human Company. “As society opens up, more and more people are moving in and having visitors, increasing the risk of losing a pet. “July 4 is also in the corner when we usually see a lot of firefighters running away, so now is really the time to make sure your pet is safe.”
The microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, about 12 millimeters, is injected under the skin of a pet through the shoulder blades. The process is like a normal shot, it only takes a few seconds. Anesthesia is not required.
The chip transmits the identification number to a scanner, which displays the number on the screen. Veterinary offices և shelters can quickly scan lost animals for microchip և communication owners, making it necessary for pet owners to update their microchip contact information when changing or moving phone numbers.
The San Diego Humane Society offers microchip services for $ 25. To schedule an Appointment visit, visit: sdhumane.org/microchip:,
