microchip albuquerqueThe 4th of July is coming up and it is time to get your pet their microchip.  You may be wondering what the 4th of July has to do with microchips. Did you know that more dogs go missing on the 4th of July than any other day of the year? The reason behind that is the noise. Fireworks can be really scary for dogs. When they hear them go off, they often try to hide for safety. Sometimes hiding means running from the noise, which can mean running out of your house, your yard or your bbq.  It is really easy for them to get lost in all the confusion of the holiday.

One of the best ways to ensure that your pup make it back to you is to have them microchipped. That way if they do get lost, they are easily returned to you when they are found.

Microchips are easy and quick to get. Bring your pet into our daily walk-in shot clinic and they can implant the chip in a matter of minutes. It is an easy procedure that does not require any overnight stays or anesthesia.

Remember, microchips are not just for dogs. You should make sure your cat has their chip as well.
