Microchipping and responsible pet ownership habits are the best means of preventing your animal being lost or stolen. If you want to improve your pet’s chances of getting home, microchipping is your best option as it offers pet owners the only truly permanent method of identifying your pet and linking the animal back to you, the owner.
