Losing your pet is a frightening situation with consequences that can be devastating. According to the American Humane Association, about 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen every year. A study published by the American Veterinary Medical Association revealed that dogs with microchips were 238% more likely to be returned to their families than dogs without them. For cats, the statistic is even more dramatic: those with microchips were 2,000% more likely to be returned home.
This is why the team at Aloro Pet Hospital considers microchip lost pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. We use the HomeAgain microchip system. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated any time, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries.
HomeAgain membership offers additional benefits such as proactive pet recovery and free access to ASPCA Poison Control. HomeAgain also comes with a number of useful services to pet owners, such as their National Pet Recovery Database, Lost Pet Specialists, Rapid Lost Pet Alerts, Lost Pet Medical Insurance, Travel Assistance for Found Pets and more.
This safe, reliable and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save you and your pet days, weeks or more of fear and anguish.

For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet's final days is difficult and emotional. Our pets are a part of our family. It is this strong bond, born from years of loyal companionship, that makes this time particularly hard to bear.

Find out about your options, including our crematory services, make some key decisions ahead of time and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.
In the days, weeks, or months leading up to your pet's final day, you can rely on our veterinary team to provide you with the information you need to make informed choices each step of the way.
