Microchip Pet Identification
Imagine if your dog or cat got lost. You’d want to give him or her the best chance of coming back home. With microchipping, you can.
Microchipping is a safe, permanent way to identify your pet in case he or she becomes lost.
A microchip, which is a tiny device about the size and shape of a grain of rice, is placed just under the loose skin at the back of the neck.
For example, if a lost dog or cat without an ID tag is found, a veterinarian or veterinary technician will use a handheld microchip scanner to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit its ID number to the scanner via a low-frequency radio wave.
Our veterinary hospital then calls the chip manufacturer, retrieves the pet owner’s contact information, and calls the owner.
Simple, and effective. If you have any questions regarding Microchip Pet Identification, please contact us!
