A great opportunity is available April 27 at the 2013 Los Alamos Dog Jog, a $20 reduced fee microchip clinic.
Veterinarians from Animal Clinic of Los Alamos have donated their time and expertise to implant the microchips and Friends of the Shelter is very appreciative of their participation.
The fee includes the registration of the microchip to a database that can be read by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the United States.
No sign up is required ahead of time, just stop by Chamisa School in White Rock from 9-10:30 a.m. The clinic is open to the public, even if you aren’t registered for the Dog Jog.
The best reason to have your animal microchipped is the improved chance that you’ll get your animal back if it becomes lost or stolen. Disasters where animals become displaced, you leave your pet with a sitter and the animal escapes, dogs that run away during thunderstorms or 4th of July fireworks, auto accidents, these are all times when your animal can become lost.
A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice.
