May is Microchip Awareness Month!

Microchipping your kitty is a super helpful way to ensure that if your kitty ever get lost and found, that they can return to your home but a simple scan and searching you their microchip number on the AAHA National Pet Microchip website!Microchipping does not hurt your kitty and is there to ensure their safe return home. Once they have a microchip, they won’t need another one!

What Should I do if my Kitty is Microchipped and is No Where to be Found?

Make sure your contact information and address are registered online and up to date! If you do not know how to update your information or want to ensure that your information is correct, feel free to contact us (or the vet that microchipped your kitty) for information on how to do so! It is also a good idea to call around to the vets, shelters, and rescues in the area and give them a description of your lost kitty so they know to keep an eye out!

What Is Microchip ?

A microchip is a small device (about the size of a grain of rice) that has a unique number associated with it that can be read with a microchip scanner. The microchip is planted under the skin (usually between your kitty’s shoulder blades) and it never needs to be replaced! This device is only programmed with the unique number given to the device by the manufacturer and nothing else! The AAHA Microchip Registry is nationwide so any vet, shelter, or rescue with a microchip scanner can locate your information to help your kitty return home safely.

Our Patients are the Best!

Our spotlight this month is on the lively 20 year old, Gracie!She came to Galaxy Cats Vet after her co-pilot ( human caretaker) saw that she had some decreased appetite and was lethargic. After some testing and an exam by our amazing Dr. K, we found that she not only had a UTI but also has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)! CKD is fairly common in older kitties due to changes in their body as they age but can also be affected by diet, usual water intake, medications, or hereditary pre-dispositions. As you can see, Gracie is feeling much better and wanted to make sure Dr. Kand our staff knew how thankful she was for her care!

If you would like your kitty to be featured on our next newsletter pronoun social media (Facebook and Instagram), feel free to let us know at your next visit! We would be more than happy to take some photos or use some that already have! P.S – Keep a look out on our website over the next few weeks foursome updates from our staff!
