Looking for another way to make sure your pet makes it safely back to you in case it gets lost. It is highly recommended that all pets be microchipped. Collars can get lost and tags can break off.

Your pet needs a form of identification that can't get lost or damaged. A microchip is a safe way to identify your pet and the best part is, it can't get lost.

Application of microchips is very safe and very quick. They are the size and shape of a grain of rice and they are placed underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a code that is linked to your name, address, and phone number.

Once you have registered through our office it is up you to update any change in your contact information with the microchip company and with our office. Registering the number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery database.

Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country all have electronic scanners that can read the microchip number. As long as there is current contact information on file with the national database the pet owner can then be contacted and reunited with his or her pet!

There is no wrong age to microchip your pet. Even indoor pets can accidentally get outside and not know how to find their way home.

At all animals clinic we provide microchips made by, HomeAgain.

Here are some common questions and misconceptions about pet microchips.

Q: Will it hurt my pet when he gets the microchip implanted?

A: It won't hurt any more than a routine vaccination. The procedure can be performed during your pets regular wellness visit.

Q: Will a microchip last for my pets entire life?

A: Since there's no battery and no moving parts, there's nothing to keep charged, wear out, or replace. The microchip will last your pet's lifetime.

Q: Isn't microchipping only for dogs?

A: Both cats and dogs need to be microchipped.

Cats often do not wear collars, and may not have any other form of ID. A recent study showed that less than 2% of cats without microchips were returned home. However, if a cat is microchipped, the return-to-owner rate is 20 times higher than if the cat was not microchipped.

**It is vital to keep your contact information up to date with your veterinarian and with the microchip company so that you can be reached.**
