Do you ever worry about what you would do if you accidentally lost your pet? Gain peace of mind through microchip implantation!
At K-M Regional Veterinary Hospital, we are devoted to the safety of your dog or cat. We strongly recommend that all pets be microchipped. Every year, pets go missing, and unfortunately, some of them do not make it home because they have not been microchipped. Even if your pet wears a collar with an identification tag, your pet should be microchipped because the collar may come off or the tags may be damaged or unreadable.
Microchipping is a safe, dependable, and simple identification solution that will dramatically increase the chances that you will recover your pet in the event he/she goes missing. It is reliable, it won’t “come” or “break” off, and it can’t be stolen or damaged
This minor, painless procedure implants a tiny chip the size of a grain of rice between your pet’s shoulder blades and under the skin. Each tiny microchip is encoded with your contact information and other information about your dog, cat, or exotic pet.
How does Microchip Implementation Work if Your Pet Goes Missing?
Fortunately, most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners capable of detecting and reading microchips, and more and more of the facilities without this equipment are obtaining it. If your pet is lost, his or her microchip will be scanned, and the information will be checked against a database to reunite you and your loving companion!
