Microchip

By May 18, 2011

Our veterinarians highly recommend microchip implantation for all animals. These safe and inexpensive chips dramatically increase the chances of being reunited in the event your pet is lost. We can microchip your pet during an office visit or while they are undergoing an anesthetic procedure.

What is a Microchip?

A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice, and is placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchips are placed with a needle in a quick and safe injection. If your pet is lost and is taken in by a shelter, animal control, or veterinary clinic, a scanner will read your pet’s unique number, and will allow them to contact you to reunite you with your lost pet.
