National Check The Chip Day

August 15th is National Check the Chip Day! Every day, lost dogs are reunited with their families thanks to microchips. However, microchips only work if they're registered. 

It's a good idea to get your pet microchipped if they're not already. Make an appointment with your local vet for microchipping today! If your pet is already microchipped, use this day as a reminder to check to make sure your pets' information is up to date.

Where do I check my pet's microchip information?

There are several different databases that allow you to register your pet's microchip. The most important place to check though (and the one vets use to look up chip information) is the database for your chip's manufacturer. You can go here: http://www.petmicrochiplookup.org/ to search the database for your pet's microchip and view the information that is listed.
