Reunited At Last

Bobbi was recently brought in by a caring member of the public because he was found wandering around alone in Sheffield! Luckily his chip details were correct so we contacted his owner who was so shocked because he’d been missing since February!

When Bobbi’s family turned up he was so excited to see them again, there wasn’t a doubt in our minds that he didn’t know who they were! There was definitely happiness all around, just look at all those smiles!

This heart-warming story highlights the importance of microchipping your pets and keeping the details up to date. If Bobbi’s microchip details were not up to date, his worried family wouldn’t have known he had been found, and he may have never gone home to be reunited with them.

If you do not have your pet microchipped, please contact your local vet to arrange this for a small cost. The price of a microchip may prevent you from the heartache in the future if your pet ever goes missing or gets lost.

The vet will implant a tiny, rice-sized microchip under the skin of your pet, you will then provide them with contact details that can increase the chances of a happy reunion if they ever get lost, just like Bobbi’s. These microchips contain a unique id number that can be easily scanned by veterinarians or animal shelters. Unlike collars or tags, microchips cannot be lost or removed, providing a fool proof method of identification.

This simple procedure is quick & painless for your pet, but provides a lifetime of protection for your furry family member. With pet microchipping, you take an important step in safeguarding your pet and providing peace of mind for yourself, knowing they are always just a scan away from being reunited with you.
