It is incredibly beneficial to have your pet microchipped. A microchip is an easily implanted chip about the size of a grain of rice that holds a code that can be referenced on the website of the manufacturer of the chip. That code will correspond with all of the pertinent information for your pet. The pet’s name, address, your phone number, etc will all be available to any vet or animal control officer who finds your pet. This makes getting your lost pet back much easier and much more likely.
