What an emotional evening at 387 Vets last night! Two lost dogs were brought in to the practice by a passer-by, and when we scanned them and phoned their owners, we discovered the dogs had been stolen over 6 months ago. Their overjoyed owners thought they would never see them again. The family’s reaction at being reunited with their beloved pets was just wonderful. And it turned out yesterday was the owner’s birthday too! What an amazingly special birthday present after such awful heartache.
This story highlights the huge value of microchipping pets. Whilst it is now compulsory for all dogs to be microchipped by 8 weeks old, it’s worth considering microchipping other pets too incase of loss. We hope it never does, but it might just happen.
