Pet Microchipping

Even if a pet only spends time indoors, Palms West Veterinary Hospital strongly advises all of its clients to microchip their animals. Because even indoor dogs have the potential to run away and get lost. Microchips are a permanent form of identification for pets, unlike collars and tags, which can come off. Additionally, since microchips are rated for 25 years, your pet won’t ever need to have them removed or recharged during that time.

Pet microchipping is a quick, somewhat painless, and very inexpensive procedure. Once implanted, all authorities need to do to find your information is scan the chip. But keep in mind that a microchip is only helpful if your contact details have been updated.

Since microchipping helps reconnect more than 15,000 lost pets with their owners each month, we think it’s the safest, most reliable form of pet recovery available.

The Benefits of Pet Microchipping

Statistics show that pet microchips increase the likelihood of reconnecting owners and lost pets. They are fully maintenance-free and unobtrusive, requiring only sporadic check-ins to make sure everything is operating as it should.

A microchip does not trigger tissue reactivity, irritation, or discomfort when it is inserted properly. Your pet will be registered with the Companion Animal Registry (CAR) and given a unique identification number and contact information once it has been microchipped.

What to Expect During a Pet Microchipping Appointment

Pet microchipping is fantastic because it is so simple to implant and helps find lost pets. A fast doctor visit and a small needle are all required to implant the device beneath your pet’s skin. There’s no need for general anesthesia! Most pets don’t even notice because it happens so quickly.
