Loud Noises – The #1 Reason To Microchip Your Pet
Noise is a year round thing. Noise happens all the time and at any time. Fourth of July and thunderstorms in New Mexico are not the only time loud noises may happen suddenly. Lawn mowers and leaf blowers blare on, people fire guns, cars backfire, ambulances race by – the absolute inevitability of loud, random noises is one reason you must microchip your pet.
Loud noises can frighten your pet. In many cases, a frightened pet may bolt in panic, getting lost very quickly in their frightened state. This is one of the main reasons you must microchip your pet.
Different areas have different laws for different types of pets and breeds. Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) may target your pet. If your pet is roaming free and frightened, BSL may very well prevent your pet from returning home. With a microchip, however, your pet can be returned to you easily.
There is no reason not to microchip your pet. The device is smaller than a grain of rice, inexpensive, and causes no discomfort. Your local New Mexico veterinarian can microchip your pet in minutes, preventing a potentially disastrous situation down the road.
