My pet always wears a collar with an identification tag. Is microchipping really necessary?

All pets should wear collar tags with their name and the phone number of their owner or veterinarian. Tags, though, may become worn and impossible to read or may slip off. Collars themselves can break or slip off. A microchip is the only form of pet identification that is permanent, with a unique number that cannot be altered or removed.
