Bring Your Lost Pet Home With Pet Microchipping in Raleigh, NC
According to the American Humane Association, one in three pets will become lost in their lifetime, and only about 2% of lost cats and 17% of lost dogs find their way back to their owner. The best way to avoid this happening to your pet is to have pet identification provided by Care First Animal Hospital. We not only offer pet ID tags in Raleigh, NC and throughout the Triangle but pet microchipping, as well.
In addition to pet ID tags with your current contact information, pet microchipping is an effective way to identify your animal and have it returned to you if it wanders too far from home. The microchip is about the size of a large grain of rice and works due to its passive radio frequency identification technology. Inserted in your pet, the procedure only takes seconds and lasts for the lifetime of your pet. Once your Raleigh cat or dog microchip has been inserted, your pet’s ID will be stored in a national database.
