Every year, pets go missing from households in the Biloxi and Gulfport areas, as well as across the country. Fortunately, permanent identification is available that offers your pet the best opportunity to be returned to you if they wander from your home. A microchip the size of a grain of rice can be inserted under your pet’s skin between their shoulder blades, and will identify them when placed under a microchip reader. Most veterinary practices and local shelters have a device required to read the microchip and identify your pet. Microchipping is an effective and cost-efficient method of having your pet returned to you in the event they are separated from you. Call the Animal Hospital of Orange Grove at 228-832-6360 to schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped today!
