Microchipping is your pet’s permanent ID and may be the only way to see your dog or cat again if he or she is ever lost or stolen. You can have your pet microchipped quickly and easily during their routine veterinary exam. No anesthetic is required to install the microchip. We simply insert a tiny microchip with your pet’s contact information beneath your pet’s skin. No muss no fuss!
If your pet was previously owned by another owner or if you received your pet from an animal rescue shelter, we can scan your pet to see if they already have a microchip installed. Most veterinary hospitals, shelters, animal rescues, and animal control facilities contain scanners to be able to easily scan your pet to see if they have a home and owner. Be sure to keep your pet’s microchip information current by logging in to the Home Again or microchip supplier website.
Please visit the AVMA’s website for more information about microchipping. If you find a lost pet, please don’t hesitate to call our office – You can bring the lost animal in to be scanned to see if he or she has a microchip. You can also go to the Pet Microchip Lookup Website to find the pet’s owner by the microchip number.
