Microchipping for Pets

A microchip is a permanent form of identification for your pet. Microchipping is an important measure ensuring that even if your pet gets separated from you, they will return home safely. The procedure is painless and as simple as getting your loyal companion vaccinated. To learn more about microchipping your pet, contact our team.

What is microchipping and how does it work in pets?

A microchip is a small device which is about the size of a rice grain. The chip is implanted beneath the skin between the shoulder and the neck. Each chip has a barcode connected to the microchip service provider’s database. Once your pet has been microchipped you submit your contact information to the database. If your pet gets lost the microchip can be scanned or read by a special device.

Why should I consider microchipping my pet?

Microchipping your pet is a good idea as most veterinary clinics and shelters are able to detect and read microchips. This makes it easy for you to be contacted. Since you control your contact information, you can always update it in your microchip manufacturer’s database with the help of our team. This way even if you change your address or contact number the one on file will be current. Another reason why you should consider a microchip for your pet is it does not need to be replaced at all. Even after many years the microchip never wears out.
