Sample Veterinary Protocols: Microchipping and Scanning

As a veterinary professional, you are a trusted resource in your community. Clients may turn to you for help in reuniting lost or stray animals with their owners.

Encouraging your clients to microchip their companion and community cats will dramatically increase the likelihood of a reunion should their cat become lost or end up in a shelter. It is also important to remind pet owners to keep their contact information up to date with the microchip company or through a universal no-cost registry
