The Tagbilaran City Agriculture and Veterinary Office (CAVO) is offering microchipping services for pets, following the program’s launching last Thursday.
Mayor Jane Yap said the program aims at pet permanent identification, and rabies prevention, and in case the dog or cat went missing, they can be easily found and reunite with the owner
Yap also encouraged residents to take advantage of the free program and have their pets implanted with microchips soon as possible.
A microchip is only the size of a grain of rice and is permanent.
“It’s safe,” CAVO said.
Each microchip has a unique number and contains basic information about the pet dog, such as the owner’s name and contact details.
