there are several ways in how to get your pets microchipped. The main reason reason is that without doing so, there is a little chance of your pet being reunited with you if it is lost or stolen. While collar tags are effective of your pet gets accidentally lost, they are easily removed, can fall off and are no deterrent for athief. Microchipping is also the compulsory first step when applying fora pet passport, for those owners who wish to take thier pet abroad.

There are other ways as well. Most animal control departments have the scanner so they can get the microchip information. If someone steals your pet, there's a good chance that it'll never be scanned unless you report it and people are looking for the animal. If he/she runs away or gets loose there's a better chance that they'll be found again.
