Barking Wednesday - Importance of Micro-Chipping your Dog

This Barking Wednesday I want to discuss Micro-chipping your dog.  A friend of mine that is the owner of Wildly Aware sent me this heartfelt story. 

According to the American Humane Association, almost 10 million pets get lost or stolen every single year. Of those that do find their way to animal shelters, only 22 percent are ever reunited with their families. Dora’s story is the exception, and it’s all thanks to her microchip that allowed her rescuers to locate her family.

The fee to have your dog micro-chipped is a one time fee that ranges between $25 - $75. As you can see the cost is well worth the peace of mind if your dog gets lost.  For more information about micro-chipping your dog - please contact your veterinarian.
