Guest Blogger: Banfield Pet Hospital: Microchip Your Pet

As our practice has seen with many natural disasters, including the recent Hurricane Irene, pets are often left behind or lost during hectic times or even during the holidays. This is a common fear, yet unfortunate reality for some pet owners.

In a continued effort to reunite pets with their owners, Banfield Pet Hospital is offering 50 percent off the Banfield microchip system powered by HomeAgain, now through November 30, 2011.

According to HomeAgain, one in three pets will become lost in their lifetime, and without identification, 90 percent will never return home. At Banfield Pet Hospital, we are dedicated to preventive care, and that includes protecting pets from becoming lost or stolen.

Together, let’s bring lost pets home again.

We received no compensation for this post. We were contacted by Banfield Pet Hospital and asked if we would spread the word about Microchipping and their discount. Since we had met Banfield at BlogPaws 2011 and I  have a microchip Mom agreed.

The woman in the photo is Dr.Karen Johnson and her dog Webster, here is some info about her!

Karen Johnson, DVM, is a 1988 graduate of Oregon State University and Washington State University Colleges of Veterinary Medicine, as well as Banfield’s vice president and client advocate. As a Banfield team member since 1988, Dr. Johnson’s role as Client Advocate allows her a unique opportunity to help and support clients across the practice dealing with challenging or difficult situations. In addition, she manages Banfield’s Hospital Audit Program for Excellence, a unique look at client service from the client’s perspective. She joined the practice directly after receiving her veterinary degrees from Oregon State University and Washington State University.
