MICROCHIPPING

No pet owner ever wants to envision a scenario in which their animal companion becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen. The most effective way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as tags and collars, cannot.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a tiny device with an encrypted number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should you and your pet ever become separated, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help safely reunite you both for a happy ending.

Does microchipping hurt?

Microchip implantation is fast, easy and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain securely in place under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never need to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what might happen to your pet should you become separated.

Is microchipping expensive?

Many of our clients are surprised to learn how affordable it is to implant a microchip. Tuscan Ridge Animal Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choosing.
