We will offer $20 microchipping for all vaccinated dogs and cats.
Recent tradgedies have seperated many people from their furbabies. Microchips increase the odds that your furbaby will find their way back to your family.
Despite your best efforts, your dog or cat has slipped out an open door and disappeared. If he's wearing a collar and identification tag, chances are good that you’ll get him back.
But what if the collar comes off?
To protect their pets in this scenario, many owners turn to technology in the form of microchips implanted in their pets. But don't rely on a microchip alone to protect your pet. In the event of accidental separation, identification tags are your pet's first ticket home. Microchips provide an extra level of protection in case your pet loses his collar and tags. Providing your cat or dog with both tags and a microchip can help ensure a happy reunion if the unthinkable happens and your companion gets lost.
What are microchips?
Microchips are tiny transponders, about the size of a grain of rice, that use radio frequency waves to transmit information about your pet. They're implanted just under the skin,, usually right between the shoulder blades.
How they work
Each microchip contains a registration number and the phone number of the registry for the particular brand of chip. A handheld scanner reads the radio frequency of the chip and displays this information. The animal shelter or vet clinic that finds your pet can contact the registry to get your name and phone number.
