Home Sweet Home

posted 8 years ago

Have used this with dogs and cats. I think its a wonderful idea. Your pet could loose a collar and ID. Also good during a hurricane or other emergencies. You can get one for your parrot,I havnt done this yet for my amazon,but its a great idea.

Pros: pets from birds to great danes

Cons: big needle

Better Choices Available

posted 6 years ago

I'm a big advocate of microchipping but I do not reccomend the Avid chip because their chip migrates from it's original injection spot between the shoulder blades. They can migrate quickly too. I've worked at vets that used Avid and have seen chips that have moved to the side of the pet within months. My own cat had an Avid chip that migrated from the shoulders to the sternum area over the course of a few years. This means a chip can be missed when the pet is scanned, since it's no longer where it should be. Avid chip migration problems are the reason vets and shelters were advised to scan the whole animal. A better choice is the HomeAgain chip. My 15 year old dalmatian has had one since she was 6 months old, it's never moved and still works. All my other cats have this chip and same thing, they haven't budged. This is because HomeAgain chips have an anti-migration tip.

Avid chips are cheap, and they work. They just don't stay put. But better this chip than no chip.

Pros: provides permenant ID for pet

Cons: chips migrate and end up places other than bewteen the shoulder blades

Great idea, a must have!

posted 8 years ago

This is a must have for all pets! Our shelter now micro-chips all of our animals. My cat from the shelter is the only pet that I have who currently has a chip. I plan to get them all chipped in the future. All of my foster cats/kittens receive the micro-chip at their time of spay/neuter. This is such a great invention!

Pros: a must have if your pet were to turn up missing

Cons: i heard something about the chip causing cancer???

Great idea

posted 7 years ago

Microchipping is so important. The chips do work and anyone in a shelter can tell you a great story about how a pet was reunited with it's owner. Just remember to register and keep your info up to date.

Pros: responsible

Cons: none

Must Have!!

posted 7 years ago

All of my dogs have chips. They are the best thing invented to make sure in a terrible situation there will be a good outcome---you'll get re-united with your pet. All cats and dogs should be chipped.

Pros: Great

Cons: none!

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
