26 Jun How to Keep your Pets from Getting Lost
One of the most nerve wracking events for any loving pet owner is when their pet goes missing. Whether they had been left outside to play for a little while, or simply escaped when the door was opened, it never feels good to know that you don’t know where they are.
But all that pain and worry can be avoided by microchipping your pet, a requirement by law in the city of San Antonio.
What is microchipping?
Microchipping consists of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice, which is embedded just under the skin and allows for your pet to be identified in the unfortunate event of your pet being lost or separated from you.
The implantation process is simple and is best compared to a regular vaccination in terms of comfort.
