microchipping has its pros and cons in my opinion

I wish we could legislate that dogs require a tag with the owner's phone number. Get the pooch back home ASAP.

microchipping is great, however vets need to be asked to check all animals that come in as new clients to make sure the pet is not stolen, i know we have an epidemic of stolen animals in my area. also, keep a safety collar on your cats, cats are euthanised more if they are believed to be feral.

I don't think that all of that is necessary. Would you like to be forced to get a small tattoo? Definately and ID is a good idea, and micro chips are great too.

We think so also, at this shelter we offer any dog who has been in 3 times a free microchip because they are habitual escape artists and are more likely to get hit by cars or picked up by citizens. They can go directly home instead of coming to the shelter, or be promptly identified if the sadder situation happens!

I totally agree. I would hate to be the one who loses a pet. I feel so much better now that my dog and cat are bot chipped and tagged.

I agree about the micro-chip! My dog got out of our fenced yard somehow one night and was run over by a car. She was drug and her collar came off. Good Samaritans brought her to an animal hospital (not seeing the collar on the ground) and she was nearly put to sleep right there because of the extent of her injuries and because she had no tags. But, they found her micro-chip! They called me and I authorized treatment over the phone and rushed over there. Had she not been chipped, they would have put her down or she wouldn't have made it another half hour without treatment. Regardless of what you think, dogs get out (I still don't know how she did), collars can come off, and horrible things can happen. Micro-chip your pet!
