Microchip Pet Identification

We highly recommend microchipping for all dogs and cats. Microchipping is a simple procedure that can be performed right here in our hospital. Pet microchips are very small, roughly the size of a grain of rice and are inserted just beneath your pet’s skin between their shoulder blades. Inserting the microchip is quick and safe similar to a routine vaccine injection.
A pet microchip uses a radio frequency known as RFID to transmit the ID number stored on the microchip to the scanning device that reads the pet’s unique number and displays it. The facility that scans your pet can then enter the microchip number into the Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool online to determine if your pet is registered and they will contact us directly so we can reunite you with your pet.
It is important to note that while we register your pet’s microchip here, it is critical that you keep your information up to date with us and the Home Again service
