Power of the Chip: Dog Reunited with Owners Eight Years Later

28th October, 2014
As unfortunate as it is, theft of pets is a very real issue in the United States. LaShena Harris, a resident of Memphis, knows this truth all too well. Harris left her dog outside her home for a moment, just to grab the dog’s collar, and someone swooped in, loaded the dog into a truck, and drove away. Harris never did catch whoever took the dog, and had long since given up any hope of recovering her. But luckily for Harris, her dog had been microchipped. Now, eight years later, Harris has been reunited with her dog. The reason? When the pup was surrendered to an animal shelter, shelter staff scanned it to ensure it wasn’t chipped. The microchip Harris had implanted while the dog was a puppy came up on the scanner, and the animal shelter worked to get in touch with Harris and to get the dog back into her original owner’s hands. The dog was in rough shape, with heartworm and complications from overbreeding, but thanks to a favor from a friend and donations collected through GoFundMe, she should make a full recovery. Harris is grateful to have her pup back in her life, and no doubt the dog is grateful to be back in a loving home that will protect her and ensure she’s taken care of. Moral of the story?

I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.

This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
