A microchip is a very small object that stores unique identifying data about a pet. It has a code that matches the pet owner’s contact information and is about the size of a grain of rice.
It’s estimated that 1 in 3 pets will go missing at some point in their life. Our hospital uses microchips, which are small rice-sized devices that are placed under your pet’s skin. Once placed, a microchip acts as your pet’s permanent ID storing important information such as your address and phone number. If your pet is lost, any veterinary hospital, animal shelter, or animal control can scan your pet with a microchip reader and quickly return your four-legged family member home.
