Every year, up to 8 million animals end up in shelters. Sadly, only 20% of dogs and less than 2% of cats are reclaimed by their owners. Not knowing where your dog or cat is can be a hopeless and helpless feeling. The best way to increase your chances of your loved one finding their way back home to you is by microchipping. At Park Animal Hospital, we’re happy to offer microchipping for dogs and cats.
Implanting a microchip in your pet is a routine, simple, and painless procedure to ensure your pet can be returned to you if they’re found. One of our veterinarians will inject the microchip under your pet’s skin. As the hypodermic needle used is slightly larger than those used with vaccinations, anesthesia isn’t required.
The microchip contains registered information you provide, which can be scanned by animal hospitals and animal shelters, so your pet can be returned home to you.
Provide yourself the relief of knowing if your pet loses there way, their chances of getting returned are much higher by microchipping them today. Call us today for an appointment.
