 AVMA, AAHA partner on Chip Day

​Posted  July 31, 2013

 

Starting this year, every Aug. 15 will be observed as “Check the Chip Day.” The AVMA and American Animal Hospital Association have joined in having the day registered with Chase’s Calendar of Events to encourage pet owners to check and update their pets’ microchip registration information. For owners of pets that are not microchipped, the observance serves as a reminder that studies have found that microchipping is the best way to recover lost or stolen pets.
