One in three pets becomes lost at some point in their lives. Of the estimated 10 million dogs or cats reported missing each year, only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats make it back home. While things happen and we can't always control where our pets wander, we can ensure they have the proper identification when they do.
To that end, Brunswick Veterinary Clinic strongly encourages you to consider microchipping your pet - even those that live entirely indoors. A microchip serves as a permanent identification for your pet's entire life and, unlike collars and tags, does not fall off. Once implanted, it can be scanned by any veterinary office or animal control officer to locate your contact information. It is a quick, affordable and relatively painless way to ensure your pet has everything they need to return home to you.
