Preventive Care


Hope Animal Hospital thoroughly endorses microchipping as a safe, effective and inexpensive method to ensure that beloved pets can be reunited with the families who love them. 10 million unidentified pets get lost every year. 90% don’t return home! Compared with these statistics, over 94% of microchipped pets have been reunited with their families. All shelters and veterinary hospitals have microchip scanners which means that microchipped pets can quickly and easily be identified if brought to a facility.

Hope Animal Hospital uses HomeAgain microchips, which are the size of a grain of rice and inserted under the skin with a syringe. Microchips are often implanted at the time of spay or neuter, but can also be inserted when the patient is awake as part of a technician exam.
