MicrochipIt’s spring, and for many owners, that means it’s time for your dog’s annual checkup.

While you’re there, be sure to have your vet verify that your dog’s microchip is still present and operating. Failures are rare, but sometimes microchips let us down. They stop working, or they migrate from the original implantation site, making it difficult to find when scanning.

A yearly checkup of your dog’s microchip will help ensure that he’s prepared in case you two get separated.
