At Countryside Animal Clinic, we encourage all pet owners to microchip their animal companions. The sad fact is that only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats make it back to their owners when they become lost. Microchipping greatly increases the chances that your pet will be returned to you.
Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless and very affordable. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life.
In addition to dogs and cats, we can also microchip ferrets, rabbits, birds, and other companion animals! To schedule your pet for an appointment to get “chipped”, give us a call at (352) 746-7171.
