Cat Microchipping

One of the worst feelings to experience as a cat owner is the realization that your cat has gone missing. Only 2% of cats make it back to their owners—which can make it feel like you’ll never see your cat again if they get lost.

Dalton Veterinary Practice wants to encourage you to consider microchipping your cat, even if they live entirely indoors–because even indoor cats can escape and become lost. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life. Microchips are also rated for 25 years, meaning they never need to be removed or recharged during your cat’s lifetime.

How Do Cat Microchips Work?

Microchipping a cat is simple, relatively painless and very affordable. Once implanted, authorities only need to scan the chip to locate your information. But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated.

Dalton Veterinary Practice believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet recovery available, helping reunite more than 15,000 lost pets to their owners every month.
