Every pet should be microchipped to increase the chances of having your animal returned to you if it is lost or stolen. Microchipping your animal is one of the most responsible things you can do as a pet owner.
A study of more than 7,700 stray animals at animal shelters showed that dogs without microchips were returned to their owners 21.9% of the time, whereas microchipped dogs were returned to their owners 52.2% of the time. Cats without microchips were reunited with their owners only 1.8% of the time, whereas microchipped cats went back home 38.5% of the time.
