Microchip Pet Identification

We offer tattooing and microchip identification as a means of permanent identification for your pet. Microchipping can be done on an outpatient basis and many clients elect to microchip when their animal is spayed or neutered. A tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is implanted between the animal's shoulder blades. This procedure takes just seconds and is relatively painless, and is recommended for companion pets of all species, breeds and ages.  We take care of the registration process for you.  When a lost pet (cat, dog, etc.) arrives at a participating animal shelter or veterinarian clinic, a universal scanner is used to identify the unique encoded number on the implanted microchip and the owner is identified and contacted immediately.

A simple injection is all it takes to implant the microchip. Many pets get lost and are never returned to their owners because they have no identification. Collars fall off, tags fall off. Don't let your pet become a statistic. Microchip and relax knowing your pet could be identified and returned home if he/she was lost. 

We scan all strays for a microchip in an attempt to reunite them with their owners.

Don't forget to change your address for the microchip identification if you move!

We offer two types of microchips - the home again microchip and the google microchip.
