No pet parent ever wants to imagine a situation in which their animal companion becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen, and often at the most inopportune time. The best way to keep your pet safe is to plan ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, simply cannot.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is a miniscule device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should you and your pet become separated, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help safely reunite you both for a happy ending.
Does microchipping hurt?
Implanting a microchip is quick, easy, and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the remainder of his or her life. This means you’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what will happen to your pet should the two of you become separated.
Is microchipping expensive?
Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Hiawasee Animal 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.
