No pet parent ever wants to imagine a situation in which their furry family member becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen. The best way to keep your companion safe is by planning ahead.
Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that conventional forms of ID, such as collars and tags, simply cannot.
A microchip is a miniscule device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then be used to help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
Microchip implantation is fast, easy and practically painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain securely beneath your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll no longer have to worry about what will happen to your pet if you become separated.
Many pet owners are surprised to learn how affordable microchipping is. Stone Cottage 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 choosing.
Don’t take chances with your best friend’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Stone Cottage Veterinary Hospital to learn more.
