The Undeniable Value of Microchipping and ID Tags

The holidays are an especially worrisome time of year for reports of missing pets. In part, this is due to all the parties and gatherings that can leave a pet vulnerable to anxiety, stress, or simple human error (accidentally leaving a door or gate open). That’s why maintaining your pet’s ID tags and microchipping your cat or dog is so important.
