Studies have shown that there has been a 250% increase in reuniting microchipped and registered dogs with their families, and a 20% increase in cats!
Why Use Petlink microchips?
Petlink microchips are unique, permanent, tamper-proof identification numbers that will ensure your pet can be identified if found and brought into a shelter or animal hospital (It does not work as a GPS to track your animal if they get lost, they have to be found and brought somewhere to have their microchip scanned). The microchip is as small as a grain of rice and sits under the skin between your animal's shoulder blades. We recommend even indoor animals be microchipped in case they get out and become lost while exploring, or even in case of natural disasters.
Keep your records up-to-date.
The key to reuniting you with your lost pet is making sure your pet’s microchip is registered immediately after it is implanted, and that your contact information remains up-to-date in the pet recovery database.
• After your pet is implanted with a microchip, you should check with the microchip registry to make sure the microchip is registered and your contact information is correct.
• Outdated phone numbers, email addresses and street addresses are useless to an animal shelter or the finder of your pet.
• You can update your contact details by contacting the pet microchip registry your pet is enrolled with. Visit the company’s website for information on updating your pet’s record online, or to get the telephone number to call.
