National Check the Chip Day is August 15th! This awareness day was created in partnership by the AVMA & AAHA because sometimes, despite our best efforts, we get separated from our pets.

Microchipping greatly increases the chances that a missing or stolen pet will be reunited with their family. Regularly updating contact information on the pets microchip is almost as important as implanting the chip itself; if someone does find a lost pet and takes them to a veterinarian to be scanned, an outdated phone number or address aren’t going to be of much use.
