Microchipping is the #1 action you can take to ensure your pet is returned to you if they get lost!
Microchips are small chips (the size of a grain of rice) that are quickly, easily, and painlessly implanted in between your pet’s shoulder blades. They are NOT a tracking device, nor GPS. They simply carry your contact information so in the event your pet is lost, it can be scanned and you can be contacted.
If you move or change contact information, make sure you update your pet’s microchip information!
Bring your pet to Cincinnati Animal CARE during normal business hours (1-6pm) any day of the week for a $25 microchip!
Most veterinarians offer microchipping as well.
If you find a pet that is microchipped, you can take that pet to any animal shelter or veterinarian to have them scanned.
Proper grooming is critical to pet health. Animals should have their nails clipped regularly and with long hair should receive regular brushing and sometimes, haircuts.
