Each year in Tulsa, Oklahoma, many pets go missing and never make it back home to their loved ones. Danner Veterinary Hospital wants to help you keep track of your pets and find them more easily should you ever get separated from them. A major reason why pets get lost and are never returned to their owners is because collars and tags can unexpectedly fall off or become damaged or unreadable. Microchipping is a method of providing permanent identification for your four-legged friend that can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged.

A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance for a happy reunion. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades in a process similar to a vaccination. The procedure takes only a few minutes and can be completed during any visit to Danner Veterinary Hospital. Each microchip has its own unique registration number that is linked to your pet’s vital information, including your name, address, and contact information, through a national database.

Dr. Danner recommends Save This Life Microchip and Pet Recovery System since it provides some unique advantages. Most veterinary offices and shelters are equipped with scanners that can check for microchips. An added bonus, however, is that if the pet is still wearing its Save This Life tag when it is found, anyone can read the microchip number on the tag, do a Google search of the number, and text or email the owner directly. Another reason why Dr. Danner likes this particular microchipping service is that should an injured stray pet come to the hospital, and it has a Save This Life microchip, he knows that he can stabilize the animal right away because the service provides Lost Pet Health Insurance to cover the charges.

Whether you live in South Tulsa, Jenks, or Bixby, Oklahoma, whether your pet is young or adult, an inside pet or outside pet, get your pet microchipped today and give yourself peace of mind knowing that your pet is permanently linked with you.
