At Shadewood Farm, we microchip every border collie puppy, adult and rescue before they leave our property. Microchipping your pet can greatly increase your chances of them coming home, IF you keep your contact information current.
If you haven’t updated your contact information, do it today! Don’t forget to update your pet’s veterinarian’s information too. Here’s an BBC article that drives this point home.
Dog microchips: Outdated contact details leave animals unclaimed
”More than 4,700 stray dogs in the UK couldn’t be reunited with their owners last year due to outdated microchips, animal charity Dogs Trust has said.”
”The charity found 37,283 dogs were left unclaimed in local authority kennels between April 2015 and March 2016.”
