Microchip Pet Identification

Ten million pets get lost every year. Without ID, 90% don’t return home. Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin on the back of the neck. Microchipping can be done safely while your pet is under anesthesia for another procedure such as spay, neuter, or dental cleaning. Otherwise we will use Lidocaine to numb the area where the microchip will be implanted. A needle is used to inject the anti-migration chip.

If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society or Animal Care & Control, they will be able to scan your pet for the chip, retrieve your pet’s information and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store.

We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet. Please call our office and speak with one of our receptionists or veterinary technicians for more information. Microchipping saves lives!
