Microchipping

Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many never make it back to their homes. Implanting a microchip in your pet is a simple way to avoid this tragedy. This procedure is as easy and painless as a vaccination.

A microchip is a tiny device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, that is implanted under the skin between the pet’s shoulder blades. It stays there for the pet's entire life.

Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, is added to a national pet registry. These days, nearly all veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is detected, the registry is called and the owner can be contacted. BBVH features the Home Again Microchip System.
