It is important for your pet to be electronically identified with a microchip. Our pets are very curious and tend to wander off at times. We can microchip at any time, but we do prefer to microchip at the time of spay/neuter for younger pets. A microchip contains a unique number to your pet that can be scanned at a veterinary clinic so your pet can be traced back to you.
The microchip is as small as a grain of rice and is implanted between the shoulders. It does not require anesthesia and is no more painful than a vaccine or injection. A microchip is life long and can be used in cats and dogs. Owners are encouraged to register their pets, so their contact information is on file if their pet is ever stolen.
