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.
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.
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 in 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
