Every year millions of pets are lost and can be reunited with their family, if they are found. A microchip is a permanent pet ID. At Clyde’s Animal Clinic we can microchip your dog or cat during any routine visit. It is a simple procedure and no anesthetic is required. We can also scan them to see if they already have a microchip. We use the Home Again microchipping system that is used by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the world. We strongly recommend microchipping all animals. In the event they are separated from you, it may be your only means of being reunited with them.
You can also use the Pet Microchip Lookup website to find a pet's owners based on the microchip number, independent of the microchipping company.
Your Pet's 2012 Resolution:
Help them get Healthy!
As the New Year begins and we make our new year's resolution to lose weight, let's not forget to add our overweight pets into the plan. As reward-based training becomes more popular, so does pet obesity. This is a serious issue and obesity is a leading contributor to diabetes in pets. Overeating, a predisposition for obesity, lack of exercise and eating the wrong types of food are the most likely causes of your pet's weight gain. Overweight pets may be suffering physically as a result of carrying the extra weight, and obese pets, like obese humans, do not live as long as their more active and weight appropriate counterparts. Obesity in pets is a condition over which the owner has significant control.
