We have discussed the value of having your pet microchipped in this column before, and I hope you have had this done. For those of you that have your pet chipped, or if you are uncertain, please come in to our office anytime and we will scan at no charge. Even though this particular day is the national day for checking, we do it all year long. If your pet is not chipped, please consider doing so. It is economical and your lost pet has a much better chance of being reunited with you.
