🐾 ATTENTION PET OWNERS AND ANYONE WHO SCANS ANIMALS FOR A MICROCHIP‼ 🐾
This is an X-ray of a dog’s flexed elbow (front leg). The tiny white shape on the forearm is a microchip that had been implanted at the dog’s shoulders.
This is why it’s important to scan for your dog’s microchip at every vet exam.
Microchips can drift, sometimes dramatically from where they are implanted.
This chip was missed at the shelter this dog was pulled from, as it would be missed by many vets or shelters.
Anyone scanning for microchips *should* be scanning the entire body, but this doesn’t always happen and microchips do, on rare occasion, go bad and fail as well.
It is your responsibility as a pet owner to ensure the chip is functioning and situated where it’s less likely to be missed.
The benefits of having your pet microchipped far outweigh the risks, but a chip is useless if it can’t be located when needed.
Also be sure it is registered with your current contact information‼
