Have you considered having your pet microchipped?
It's easy as can be. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and is implanted with a needle, usually between your pet’s shoulder blades. Your pet will experience about the same pinch as it would get from giving blood, and neither you nor he will be able to feel the chip once it’s in.
Each chip has a unique number on it that can be picked up and read by a scanner. If your pet is found, or if you find a pet, a veterinarian or animal shelter can scan the pet and easily access the microchip number.
Chips are registered with different companies who have your information. Our chips are registered with “Home Again” who will have all the information they need to reach you and our office. By looking up your chip number they will have your pet’s name, your contact info, and our hospital’s information. If your contact information ever changes but you forgot to keep it updated with Home Again, our vet will be their next contact and can be the missing link that connects you to your lost pet.
There are numerous success stories across the country of microchips helping owners get reunited with their lost pets. Unlike collars or tags, which might slip off, your microchip is with your pet for life. Help give them the chance to find you and their home again.
No appointment is necessary to have your pet microchipped. Just come in during our regular business hours!
