Every year millions of pets disappear from homes and yards. Micro-chipping can help find your pet in the event he or she escapes your home or yard and gets lost. Here at Paws & Claws Veterinary Hospital , we offer micro-chipping services for cats and dogs.
Benefits of Micro-chipping
Microchips can help identify your dog or cat in the event he or she gets lost. The microchips are inserted just below the skin on the back of your pet's neck. Your phone number and address are entered into a database and linked to the chip. In the event your pet becomes lost, any veterinarian or shelter can scan your pet’s microchip and call you to tell you they have found your lost dog or cat.
Here at Paws & Claws Veterinary Hospital, we use the a special microchip. The chip and needle come prepackaged for ease of insertion. The needle is designed with your pet’s comfort in mind. Our veterinarian has been trained in the use of the chip to reduce the chances of migration and complications.
In addition to the chip, your pet will receive a collar tag with the customer service phone number. This phone number ensures that anyone who finds your dog will be able to return your dog. All someone has to do it call the number on the tag. A representative will call the primary contact number in your file and alert you that your pet has been found. This allows your dog or cat to be found and returned to you even if the individual does not own a microchip scanner.
For the safety and well-being of your pets, we encourage you to schedule a microchipping appointment today by calling Paws & Claws Veterinary Hospital at (209)832-4444.
