Expert's Assistant chatimg
Customer: I found a loose pit-bull/boxer that is well trained and seems to be well fed. I don’t know if it just got out from someone’s yard or got abandoned but I’m not sure what to do next. I’m worried he will get put down if I call animal control and I don’t know if any vets are open right now to see if he is chipped. Any suggestions?
JA: The Vet will be able to answer your question, plus any follow-ups you may have. What's the Pit Bull's name and age?
Customer: I have no idea what it’s name is, but it’s age is probably close to a few months shy of three. Possiable two.
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know about,?
Customer: No. The dogs seems to be in perfect health and isn’t displaying any signs of physical or emotional injury.

Hi. I'm Dr. Jessica.

You should take the dog to the emergency clinic to be scanned for a microchip. Is there an emergency clinic near you?

Not that I know of. I will look one up now.
It looks like there is one in my city.

Great news! If she has a chip she can be returned to her family quickly! If not then they will guide you to whom to contact for her to go to a shelter.

Okay, thank you for your help ����

No problem! Glad to help!
