MICROCHIPPING YOUR PET

Losing your pet is a stressful and sometimes even tragic event.Collars and ID tags are the most common choices pet owners use to protect their pets.Unfortunately, collars and tags sometimes fail.Your lost dog or cat may not be identified if you rely only on collars and tags.

Microchipping your pet improves the chances that if found, your dog or cat may be identified and returned to you.Animal Control offices and most veterinary clinics have universal chip readers to aid in identifying found pets.

A microchip is a glass bead about the size of a grain of rice.It is implanted under the skin between your pet's shoulder blades. It contains a computer chip with a 10 digit code.The information in the microchip needs to be read by a scanner.Once implanted, you will need to register the microchip and keep your contact information up to date in the microchip registration database.

Implanting a microchip is a simple procedure.No surgery or anesthesia is required as it is no more painful than a typical injection.To reduce stress, we often recommend implanting the microchip while your pet is under anesthesia for spay, neuter, dentistry or other procedure.

Rand Road Animal Hospital highly recommends microchipping your pets.If your pet is lost or stolen, his/her microchip may identify your pet, allowing your dog or cat to be returned to you.Please call our office if you should have any questions.

Take an active role in your pet's health by scheduling an annual wellness exam.

Testimonials

  • "Dr. Pete and staff take such pride in caring for the animals and educating thier owners. My family has gone for 20 years to his office, I myself with my own for 6 years. My animals are safe and loved when I bring them, there's no where else I'd consider taking them. I'll do the 30 mile drive for that."
