Updating pet microchip

19-Mar-2020 21:13

As a helpful reminder, the AVMA and the American Animal Hospital Association created “Check the Chip Day” to encourage pet owners to check their pet’s microchip information annually and keep it up to date.

“Check the Chip Day” is on August 15, so here is your reminder!

If your pet becomes lost and the information in the microchip registry database isn’t current, the shelter or veterinary staff won’t have a way to contact you. And updating your pet’s microchip information can easily slip your mind.

If your pet is lost or injured the chances of it being found and scanned for a microchip are extremely high.
