While many pet owners have heard or read the miraculous stories of lost pets traveling hundreds of miles to return home. The sad reality is 1 out of 3 pets will get lost at some point in their lifetime. Without permanent identification, 90% of lost pets will not return home.
The Home Again Microchip is a unique 10 digit code that cannot be altered and will last for the life of your pet. The microchip comes preloaded in a sterile applicator and is injected under the loose skin between the shoulder blades. The process takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than it would to a vaccine.
The Home Again Recovery Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year to facilitate the recovery of lost pets. While collars with identification tags are strongly recommended for cats and dogs, they can be lost or removed leaving the lost pet with no means of being able to verify or contact its owner.
It is important to register your pet’s microchip. Keeping your contact information up to date with Home Again will help in identifying your pet should it end up missing. Here at Centennial Hills Animal Hospital, we waive the registration fee for your convenience and complete the registration form. Again, it is important to keep your information current with Home Again.
