New Microchip doesn't scan
Took Lacey our new 3yo to the vet yesterday to have her cold checked and get her in to the system. I didn't think to bring the microchip number so they can enter it into their system but the vet said no worries, - she'll just scan it. Took out the wand they always use and no pings. Took out a different wand and still no pings. We all just looked at each other. One of those things that make ya go hmmmm.
Animal Control chipped her when I adopted her last week and the chip is not responding. I'm taking her back to Animal Control next week (after her cold has passed) to be checked there with their wands and re-chipped if necessary. I told the vet that it was quite unsettling to me to think that if my new cat got out and was lost that she would not have been read and I possibly would never see her again. Got me to wondering, has anyone ever gotten the chip checked while at the vet's??? Might be something you'll want to do at the next visit - just to be sure.
