Identifying microchip implant of dog

What is Pet Microchipping?

Pet microchipping involves implanting a tiny, rice-sized microchip under your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a veterinarian or animal shelter using a handheld scanner. This identification number is linked to your contact information in a national pet recovery database, allowing you to be quickly notified if your pet is found.

How Pet Microchipping Works

If your pet becomes lost or strays from home, their microchip can be scanned by a shelter or veterinarian. Once the microchip number is retrieved, it can be used to access your contact information in the pet recovery database. This enables the finder to contact you and reunite you with your pet quickly and easily.

Why Choose Our Pet Vaccine Clinic?

Permanent Identification

Unlike collars and tags, which can become lost or removed, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet. This ensures that your pet can be identified even if they are not wearing their collar or tags.

Increased Chance of Recovery

Pets with microchips are more likely to be reunited with their owners if lost or stolen. Microchips provide a reliable means of identification that cannot be altered or tampered with, increasing the likelihood of a successful reunion.

Peace of Mind

Microchipping offers peace of mind for pet owners, knowing that their furry friend has a permanent form of identification that can help ensure their safe return home.

Legal Requirements

In some areas, microchipping may be a legal requirement for pet owners. Even in areas where it is not mandatory, microchipping is highly recommended as a responsible pet ownership practice.
