No pet parent ever wants to envision a situation 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 traditional forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is a tiny device encrypted with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet become separated from you, the microchip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help safely reunite you both.
Does microchipping hurt?
Implanting a microchip is quick, easy and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for your pet’s comfort. Once embedded, the chip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never be required to do it again. More importantly, you’ll no longer have to worry about what will happen to your pet if you become separated.
Is microchipping expensive?
Many pet parents are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Critters & Such Pet Care offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.
