Microchipping your pet increases the likelihood that your cat or dog will be returned to you! Each microchip contains a specific number that identifies your pet. The chip can be read by a veterinarian’s office or an animal shelter to determine the owner.
Microchipping is an anesthesia-free operation that takes only a few minutes from start to finish. Your pet will unlikely notice the tiny, grain-sized microchip implanted near their shoulder blades, just beneath the skin. Our veterinarian inserts a little chip into a syringe and gently implants it in seconds, allowing pets to resume normal activities immediately.
While not a tracking device, microchips have proven extremely useful throughout the years. More than 40% of felines and 50% of dogs with microchips are reunited with their owners.
