MICROCHIPPING

Microchipping is a safe and effective way to ensure that your pet can be quickly identified and returned to you in the event that they become lost or stray. A microchip is a small, rice-sized device that is implanted beneath your pet's skin, usually between their shoulder blades. The microchip contains a unique identification number that is registered with a national database, which can be accessed by veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and other organizations.

The process of microchipping is simple and can be performed during a routine office visit. The veterinarian will use a sterile needle to implant the microchip beneath your pet's skin, usually without the need for anesthesia. The procedure is similar to a routine vaccination and is well-tolerated by most pets.

Once the microchip is implanted, it is important to register your pet's information with the national database. This includes your name, address, phone number, and other contact information. If your pet becomes lost or stray, a veterinary clinic or animal shelter can scan the microchip to retrieve your contact information and reunite you with your pet.

In addition to providing a means of identification, microchipping also has other benefits. For example, some airlines require pets to be microchipped before they can travel. Additionally, microchipping can help prevent pet theft, as the microchip cannot be removed or tampered with like a collar or ID tag.

Overall, microchipping services are a valuable investment in your pet's safety and well-being. If you have any questions about the microchipping process or would like to schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped, you may contact us.
