Microchips play an integral role in reuniting lost pets. A microchip is a tiny chip that is implanted under the surface of the skin in between the shoulder blades. The chip is encoded with a number that is specific to that pet. If a pet gets lost and ends up at a shelter or veterinary facility, the facility can use that number to reunite the pet with its owner.
The implantation itself is as easy as receiving a shot and is over within seconds. While there is a small degree of discomfort associated with the injection, it does not last. Most pets will tolerate the implantation without the need for sedation. Call today for more information or to schedule an appointment for a microchip implantation.
