Pet Microchipping

What Is a Microchip?

A microchip is a tiny electronic device used for various purposes, including identification and tracking. In the context of pet microchipping, it refers to a small, implantable device used to identify and reunite lost or missing pets with owners.

How Does a Microchip Work?

The microchip is a harmless radio-frequency transponder assigned a unique identification number. It has no moving parts, no batteries, and no power source. Yet, when scanned with a specific type of scanner, usually by a vet or animal shelter, the microchip transmits the identification number. Our practice can check your contact information in a database.

Steps to Effective Microchipping

Steps to effectively microchipping your pet are helpful reminders to complete the process, so you can rest assured your pet is protected if it ever becomes lost.

Schedule an Appointment

Schedule an appointment with our veterinarian or a trained professional in microchipping procedures. This appointment ensures the implantation is done correctly and safely.

Discuss the Procedure

Discuss the procedure with our veterinarian. We can explain the process, answer questions, and provide information about what to expect.

Register the Microchip

After implantation, ensure the microchip is registered with the manufacturer or a pet recovery database. Provide accurate contact information, including your name, address, and phone number.

Keep a Record

Keep a record of the microchip number and the contact information for the microchip manufacturer or database. This information is vital in case your pet is lost or needs identification.

Update Contact Information

If you move or change phone numbers, promptly update your pet's microchip registration to ensure you can be contacted if your pet is found.
