A pet’s skin is surgically pierced with a pet microchip, a tiny electronic device often inserted between the shoulder blades.
Our veterinarians highly recommend microchip implantation for all animals. These safe and inexpensive chips dramatically increase the chances of being reunited if your pet is lost. At St. John Animal Clinic, we can microchip your pet during an office visit or 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 taken in by a shelter, animal control, or veterinary clinic, a scanner will read your pet’s unique number and allow them to contact you to reunite you with your lost pet.
Save This Life Google Searchable Microchip
Save This Life’s innovative technology has revolutionized the pet recovery process. The leaders of Save This Life are former rescuers who have developed a superior method of helping lost pets find their way home safely. They created Save This Life as a response to their frustration and disappointment in traditional microchip companies’ pet recovery systems. Each Save This Life microchip number is searchable on Google. When someone finds a pet and Googles the microchip number, they are able to privately contact the pet owner with a text message and an email. The pet owner receives a GPS map of where the person who found their pet is actually located.
