Keeping your pets safe!

Microchipping is a valuable tool in safeguarding your furry family member. It provides a reliable and permanent form of identification, ensuring that you and your pet can be swiftly reunited in the unfortunate event of separation. To help you understand the significance of microchipping and how it works, we've prepared some common questions and answers. Read on to learn more about this essential aspect of pet care.

Questions about Microchipping?

Microchipping is crucial for your pet's safety and security. It provides a permanent form of identification, ensuring that your pet can be easily traced back to you if they ever get lost or separated. The tiny microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is inserted under your pet's skin and contains a unique identification number, making it a reliable way to reunite lost pets with their owners.

We make the microchipping process straightforward and safe. Our skilled veterinarians will implant the microchip with minimal discomfort to your pet. The microchip can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter, allowing for a quick and secure identification process. The information linked to the microchip is then stored in a national pet recovery database, ensuring your contact details are always up-to-date.

While microchipping may not be a legal requirement, it is strongly recommended for your pet's safety. Collars and ID tags can get lost or removed, but a microchip provides a permanent and reliable means of identification. It's a proactive measure to ensure that if your pet ever goes missing, they have a higher chance of being reunited with you quickly and safely.

It's crucial to annually check your pet's microchip details. Over time, contact information may change. Regular checks ensure that your pet's identification remains accurate, enhancing the chances of a swift reunion in case of separation.
