New York, N.Y., August 21, 2015 - Dr. Kathleen Heaney, Director of Companion Animal Technical Services, visited with NBC New York to share HomeAgain's microchip technology and the steps pet owners can take to keep their pets safe.

While one in three pets go missing during their lifetime, without proper identification 90% will never be reunited with their families. Microchipping is a permanent identification that helps find your pets and return them home.

Dr. Heaney answered some great questions from host Jacque Reid, starting off by explaining the small chip size and ease of injecting during a simple office visit. The microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades.

Remember to register your microchip, and keep contact information updated, online at Veterinarians and animal shelters know to scan lost pets, and will quickly be able to contact the chip manufacturer and return your pet.
