Microchipping

Pet identification is a must for keeping your beloved companion safe, but sometimes a collar and identification tag are not enough if your pet is lost or missing. Microchipping your pet is a safe and effective way to help ensure that your pet returns home safely. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice, and it is implanted beneath your pet's skin, between the shoulder blades, in a process similar to a vaccination. Every microchip is encoded with unique information about your pet, which is stored in a national database. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters throughout the country are equipped with special scanners capable of detecting and reading the data on a microchip. If your pet is lost, that data is used to reunite you and your pet.

 

Scottsdale Ranch Animal Hospital uses the HomeAgain microchip system. After microchipping your pet, we register your pet and enter his or her information into the HomeAgain database. Please ask our staff for more information about microchipping your pet.
