No pet parent ever wants to imagine their animal companion becoming lost. Unfortunately, these things happen. At 30th Street Animal Hospital, we believe the best way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a small device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database which stores your contact information. Should your companion become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
Implanting a microchip is quick, easy and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for your pet’s comfort. Once implanted, the chip will remain securely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you won’t have to worry about what will happen to your pet if you become separated.
Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. 30th Street Animal Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness check, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.
Don’t take chances with your loved one’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact the 30th Street Animal Hospital team to learn more.
