MICROCHIPPING: PERMANENT IDENTIFICATION

To ensure that your pet returns home safely, you should ask us about microchipping. Microchipping is a safe and effective way to be reunited with your pet if they are lost or leave home.

Microchips are implanted into your pet’s skin during a process similar to vaccination. Each microchip is encoded with information about your pet that is tracked in a national database. Veterinary hospitals, clinics, and shelters across the country have special scanners that can detect and read the microchips. If your pet goes missing, their microchip is scanned and the information is used to return your pet home safely.
