Getting Pets Microchipped in Murfreesboro

Have you ever seen those lost pet posters up around your neighborhood? It’s sad to walk past a telephone pole with more than one missing dog or cat paper stapled to it.  Rutherford County PAWS estimates that they see between 20 and 60 animals a day brought into their shelter.  You can search sites like Craigslist and Facebook and see just how many missing or found pet notices there are, too.  Wouldn’t it be nice to avoid the terror and the days or weeks of uncertainty?  This is why we’re working to make sure every pet can get microchipped in Murfreesboro, TN.



 A Single Tool

We mentioned above how people use Craigslist and social media to find lost pets or their owners.  In fact, there are dozens of tools out there that are trying to reunite pets and their owners.  Fido Finder, Pet Harbor, local veterinarians, shelters, groomers, animal control and rescue groups.  It’s so overwhelming to try to figure out where you even start.  According to the ASPCA, less than half of missing dogs are found by looking in your neighborhood for them.  In fact, 15 percent of lost pets are never recovered by their owners, sadly.  With the invention of microchips, however, everyone was able to use the same tool to keep track of pets.  Every veterinarian and shelter carries a microchip reader these days.  All it takes is a quick scan to get the identification number and they can find the owner that same day.  Getting your pet microchipped here in Murfreesboro has never been easier!


An Easy Procedure

We know how finicky pets can be about going to the vet’s office.  After all, it usually means they get poked with something.  Now, to be fair they might be right about the occasional poking, but the beauty of microchips is that they’re a one-time deal.  All your veterinarian will do is place the chip just under the skin using a large needle and your pet will have their permanent identification in place.  You can always go online and change your contact information if you ever move or change your phone number, too.
