Microchipping is a safe, permanent, and effective way to help identify your pet if they become lost or separated from you. At our animal hospital, we offer microchipping services to help ensure your furry friend can be reunited with you if they are lost.
The microchipping process involves inserting a tiny chip beneath your pet’s skin, typically between their shoulder blades. The chip contains a unique identification number that is registered with a national pet recovery database.
If your pet is lost or separated from you, a veterinarian, animal control officer, or shelter worker can use a scanner to read the chip’s unique identification number. They can then use this to look up your contact information in the pet recovery database and help reunite you with your pet.
Microchipping is a quick and simple procedure that can be done during a regular veterinary visit. It is safe and relatively painless for your pet and can be done in just a few minutes. At 434 Animal Hospital of Longwood, we only use high quality microchips that are registered with a national pet recovery database. We also will provide you with steps for how to update your contact information if you move or change phone numbers.
Microchipping is an important step to ensuring your pet’s safety and well-being. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
