Consider microchipping your cat

November 28, 2011

Nigel came across some interesting information from the Christchurch earthquake a while ago. Apparently hundreds of animals spooked and fled with the major quakes, but the SPCA reported that every microchipped animal was returned to its owner within 24 hours. Many of these were cats.

While it is now mandatory for most dogs to be microchipped, there are a growing number of cats being microchipped as well.

Cats are more likely to go missing than dogs so it is well worth considering. Contact the clinic for more information.
