No loving pet owner wants to think about their animal companion becoming lost. Unfortunately, things happen. At Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital, we believe the best way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchipping provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a teeny device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database that stores your contact information. Should your pet become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local shelter or animal clinic. The information gathered can then help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.

Does microchipping hurt?

Implanting a microchip is quick, easy and virtually painless. The procedure is performed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never need to have it done again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what will happen should your pet get loose.

Is microchipping expensive?

Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchipping is incredibly affordable. Compassionate Care Veterinary 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 choice.

Don’t take chances with your best friend’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital to learn more.
