Microchip reunites owner and cat after two years

Missing cat found, microchip

Homeward Bound!

The benefits of microchipping your pet can never be highlighted too much, and a recent tale at our Small Animal Practice demonstrated just what a happy ending there can be.

A local Langford resident found a cat, and not knowing who he belonged made the good decision to bring him into our Small Animal Practice to have his microchip scanned. Our team were surprised to discover that the cat, Martin, had been registered missing for over two years and had the enjoyable job of phoning the owner and breaking the news that Martin had been found.

The owners were delighted to receive the news, as they had given up hope of him ever being found. Martin went missing not long after the owners moved from Langford to Nailsea, and no one thought he would have made it back to his roots. He has now been reunited with his family.

If your pet is microchipped, don’t forget to contact the microchip company if you change address.  To find out more about microchipping your pet, contact our Small Animal Hospital.
